65 Days of Static - The Destruction of Small Ideas (2007)

Electronic post-rock

This is instant gratification post-rock. The great twist is the excellent electronic programming going on throughout the songs. Occasionally those elements do place a heavy hand over a section but the UK group bounces right back. A sprinkling of math-rock also added to the mix is always welcome in my book. The Destruction of Small Ideas is one of my favorite releases of theirs. While not my favorite group per say. They do what they do extremely well. There are other groups that travel in the same melding of genres but 65 Days proves to be the most interesting.
