Goonies Never Say Die - In A Forest Without Trees Cover

A classic post-rock blissout that rivals anything off of Explosions In The Sky’s latest album...

The awesomely named Goonies Never Say Die are a post-rock band hailing from the legendary land of, erm, Blackpool. Like much post-rock, it can be hard to distinguish the album from many of their peers on first listen, but stick with it and the nuances reveal themselves. The watery guitars of ‘Don’t Fight The Fire, Fuck The Arsonist’ recall Isis’ most relaxed moments while ‘When Middle Eights Migrate’ builds to a fantastic, though disappointingly short, Tool-esque heaviness. The highlight is ‘Sometimes It’s Not So Bad’, a classic post-rock blissout that rivals anything off of Explosions In The Sky’s latest album.
