Solkyri – ‘Hunter’

SOLKYRI - 'HUNTER'

Are You My Brother?’ the debut album from Sydney’s Solkyri is available now via Bird’s Robe Records (also home to sleepmakeswaves and Panzer Queen). The trio are known for their post rock explosions and intricate instrumentals, album cut ‘Hunter’ is but one example. At its core ‘Are You My Brother?’ thrives on the guitar, bass, drums combination but breaks out with additional musicians adding strings, horns and vocals (Hannah Cameron) on ‘Home’. If you’re a fan of instrumental tunes, post rock or experimental music – check out the rest here.

In January, Sigur Rós announced the departure of long-term keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson. Now a trio, Sigur Rós will release their new album ‘Kveikur’ on June 17 (June 18 USA) via XL Recordings (pre-order here). ‘Brennisteinn’ (brimstone) is the first track released from the album, check out the video below. The Icelandic vets are tipped to get more “aggressive” this time round, a reaction to their previous LP ‘Valtari’.

Apricot Rail – 'Basket Press'

Instrumental post rockers Apricot Rail release their second album ‘Quarrels’ featuring ‘Basket Press‘ (free download) on February 25 via Hidden Shoal Recordings. The Perth-based six piece shift between pretty melodies and different textures… when was the last time you heard woodwinds on a post rock tune!? The “soft, soft, oh my gawd crescendo” moments are avoided in place of a more reflective listening experience. Thumbs up.

Magnets – ‘Doe’

Magnets flip between vocal harmonies (fit to impress Justin Vernon) then jump straight into deep, driving riffs usually reserved for the likes of Russian Circles. Take a listen to Magnets new single ‘Doe‘ to hear what I’m on about (out now via Something, Something Records). The British four piece hail from Folkestone and describe themselves as ‘heavy shoegaze’ but there’s a lot going on to attract post rock and metal lovers too.
