Go March is a band from this very city, an instrumental rock band trio to be exact. The band started after some jamsessions. At first, they seemed more inspired by bands like Lightning Bolt and Boris but somehow Go March went a totally different way. A first single was released, 'Rise' and suddenly this trio was going in a completely new and fresh direction. Personally, I really don't mind because this is a damn good direction, one where electronics and post-rock perfectly blend together.
The album opens in quite a krautrock fashion with an immersive tempo and blissful soundscapes. Yet, gradually other elements come in, turning the whole into a psychedelic trip. There is just as much Kraftwerk as there is Mogwai, which is already stated correctly in the biography, but there is also just as much Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream as there is Godspeed! You Black Emperor or Caudal.
All those names have come to mind before I was halfway through the album and the brilliantly jamming track 'Like A Record' adds a bit of Ozric Tentacles to the mix, much to my delight I have to say. Yet, there is also something darkjazzy, especially in the David Lynch worthy 'Slow Horse'. This track is probably what would have happened when Monkey3 and Dale Cooper Quartet were locked up in a recording studio. Needless to say perhaps, but this tune is gold.
The entire album is a pleasure to listen to, both actively and as background music for countless of activities. Fans of anything between post-rock, krautrock and psychedelic rock should check this out. I haven't heard these genres sounding this intimate since I got acquainted with Alice In The Cities and I haven't heard such jamming tunes since last time I experienced Moon Duo. Highly recommended stuff...
