Day 215

Godspeed You! Black Emperor- Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada

Mysterious E.P. from GYBE. Nowhere on the record, does it say the band's name, no songs are listed, and you have no idea which side is Side 1. All that being said, I love this record!

So not much I can really say about this album. If you aren't familiar with GYBE, they are an instrumental rock band from Montreal. In the vein of Explosions In The Sky and This Will Destroy You. But they were doing it well before both of these bands. Guess that puts them up there with Mogwai and Mono.

I'm pretty happy to see that they have finally gotten back together and are going on a full North American tour this year. I have no doubt they'll make it to Austin. I missed them the last time they came down here. That must have been 2002 or so.

This is the only album I've bought from Backspin Records, which is a real shame since they do have a really nice selection. It's just hard for me to shop at other record stores when I have so many buddies at Waterloo. I should go back and see if they have any other GYBE.
