This Will Destroy You - This Will Destroy You

2008. USA

Post-Rock is a genre that can be very uniform. There are zillions of bands out there and it takes patience to listen to such a massive amount of music of the style. Nevertheless from time to time you find original and outstanding bands like this one that make it totally worth it.

This Will Destroy You is an american quartet playing instrumental very cinematic and visual post-rock basing their sound in polished clean reverb guitars melodies that would anesthetize a starving gorilla. To this trademark guitar work they add on background soundscapes (sometimes also guitars, with an impressive usage of ebow) and solid drumming when neccessary, sometimes electronic.

The album that follows their name is their second release, an epic journey to the mysterious and fascinating. As a personal recommendation I recently heard to this band while travelling in train, and it was one of the greatest musical experiences ever, they just make the perfect pair.
