And So I Watch You From Afar - ‘And So I Watch You From Afar’ Cover

Just when you thought you couldn’t give a fig for yet more instrumental post-rock, along come these upstarts.

Just when you thought you couldn’t give a fig for yet more instrumental post-rock, along come these upstarts to clout you upside the head for taking your eye off the ball. Kissing cousins to From Monument To Masses, ASIWYFA deal in a similar line of dynamic crashes, danceable rhythms and Dave Knudson guitar squiggle, even giving their songs similarly state-smashing titles to again raise the question of just how political you can really be while barely uttering a word. True to form, the band occasionally lose themselves amidst untold minutes of panoramic fartarsery, but there’s always a tubby fucker of a riff lurking on the horizon to ensure things come back to life with another reassuring thunk.
