17.Sep // Maybeshewill - To The Skies From A Hillside

There must be something in the Post-Rock Code (if the Pirates can have one, then why not post-rockers?) about being hard working and patient, for like ascendant post-rockers du-jure 65daysofstatic, Maybeshewill have been tirelessly but quietly (then loudly, then quietly, then in a strange time signature) working their way into a revered cult position which takes them far outside the confines of Leicester, not a town usually known for sonic experimentation.

With this, their first release in over a year, they've put their best foot forward, attempting to drum up excitement for a coinciding tour. It's a beguiling piece of intertwined guitar-lines and electronic experimentation, melodic to the last and very well produced. Each layer of noise sits atop its forbears with growing majesty as it runs its course. Why is it that instrumental music always has me reaching for the 'elemental' metaphors? Well, fine. Forget the metaphors. It's a really fantastic track, and that's why you should listen to it.
