you'll probably find if you stop worrying about the gear you have you'll have a heap more time to play.

Got a new bass player, very driven, writes heaps of cool shit and helps bring more structure to everything.

Here's our first decent recording, this one actually has vocals haha.

It's really evolved beyond a Russian Circles wanna band which is what it kind of started as

We definitely have some post metal moments (esp in the tracks written by me) but the bassist brings a poppier melodic side to things.
But we're also starting to bring in a math element as well (inspired by Battles & Tortoise) so starting to bring in weird time signatures and sampling and stuff. Picked up a Novation Launchkey Mini from work the other day, really fun to sample bass/guitar sounds, fuck them up in logic and then chuck em on the sample pads and make some weird sounding shit


Oh man, this is awesome! Love when the heavy drops in. Perfect level of intensity.

thanks guys. I'm lucky that our bass player is a goddamn genius, most of the tricky intricate parts had already been written for this piece.
Learning this relatively straight 5/4 intro part while the rhythm section shuffles out a weird 6|4 / 10|4 alternating pattern was a headfuck though

My favourite post rock artists include the Carpenters (Mr Postman) and the Allman Brothers (Whipping Post).

I think I'm with you on that one... all that counting and stuff would give me the shits. Its bad enough counting 12 bars.

Rig rundown?

Cheers man!

Greco LP Custom into mega pedal board of doom (timeline and big sky for verb and delay) with a Magnetic Effects Tonebender Fuzz for the heavier stuff in the middle.

All running into my DR103 clone w/ an Orange 4x12. SE Electronics X1 Condensor Mic in front of the cab

Thanks man, love Red Sparowes!
