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.

https://soundcloud.com/cecilturbine/con ... percussion

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.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Sounds good druz, it reminded me a bit of red sparowes when it kicked in just after the minute and a half mark.
