Now Like Cenotaphs
Pants has gotten me into an all-instrumental show on Radio K called Now Like Photographs. If you like Minus the Bear and Trans Am, you will like this show. It's a lot of quiet post-rock but they also do drone and ambient. Their tag is "epic instrumental music," and as far as I can tell the rule is no vocals with lyrics, but wordless singing gets a pass. So Sigur Rós is sometimes okay. Pants's favorite NLP band and mine is Explosions in the Sky. They just started a huge tour that begins tonight at the Langerado Music Festival with Cat Power and Stephen Malkmus in Sunrise, Florida--not a bad town to begin a cross-country jog in, I'm thinkin'--so now when they come to yr town you will know to go see them and be moved and awed.
