Graboids - Infinite Delay
Released February 27th, 2007
Stickfigure Records



Who?

Charlottesville quartet involuntarily representing the cosmos in ambient post-rock form. Striking resemblances to a string section-less Godspeed You! and a more bold North, Graboids are charting new and exciting experimental territory with echo pedals and boundless imagination guiding their way.

How Is It?

Thoroughly creepy and constantly on edge. Through the ripples of instrumentation, you're always expecting the band to explode into full-force. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. The anticipation for something big is what keeps this album moving. Take the track "Tremolo" for example: the song rides under a maelstrom of feedback, echoes, and a driving percussion backbone. Only listening carefully towards the five minute mark will you be able to pick up any trace of guitars in the mix; thats how chaotic these tracks get. Underneath the constant movement is a certain distinguishable beauty, a certain aesthetic for symmetry amidst destruction.

Key Tracks: "Tremolo", "Cowboy Killer"
RIYL: Mogwai, GY!BE, North
