I am gonna keep this short, I really don't have time to post, but I'm doing it anyways. You see, I turn 22 years old today, and I am spending it gloriously eating potatoes and cramming for Japanese history class yet again. So what is dramatically different from a cool spring day in Detroit that might make me forget I'm trapped here? Lebanon, of course, and not just the images from the name, but the band itself. Being Israeli post-rock is in rather lonely company as far as I can tell, but that is exactly what makes it something to pay attention to. This is the more guitar-driven side of the post-rock spectrum, which I find considerably more enjoyable than the overdrawn sounds of the like of Sigur Rós. Two albums, both worthy listening to. Also, pilgrims, wish a happy birthday to Brosef Stalin/danger dog, for it is his birthday as well, and no we're not the same person, it is just a very strange happening.
