Thousands - S/T
Thanks goes to Omar K. for this one. It's not often I see a band email me such a sincere message....
Thousands is an intensely epic post-rock band out of Boston. They give me Godspeed You! Black Emperor vibes and at times even Orchid vibes (before the build up to all the screaming of course, see "...And the Cat Turned To Smoke" for an example of what I mean). Nothing but amazing music is what I sense from these guys. I would love a little more experimentation in the form of Godspeed's field recordings but that might be too derivative.... either way well worth downloading.
