My Education
5 Popes

One of my faves of the week is the My Education CD which is an absolute stormer. Quality post rock The lead track on this CD is absolutely fine example of a quality instrumental. I'd go as far as to say that they don't actually come much better. It's a lilting uplifting tune with lots of gutars and str...view item »

Cinders Ensemble

My Education
Concentration Waltz

Also proving that Texas is the new erm...oh I don't know...are My Education. We liked them so much we gave them a full 7" to ply their majestic trade. If you like the grandiose post rock of Godspeed you Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky or Mogwai then I really think you are going ...view item »

My Education / Theta Naught
Sound Mass II: Spiritual Docking

Lots of crescendos and climaxes and guitar twinkling on this one: 'Sound Mass II: Spiritual Docking' brings together not one but two post-rock bands for a game of who's-the-best-at-improvising.

Towards the end of the label’s existence I released one...view item »

My Education Vs Dalek
Spiegel Im Spiegel

My Education Vs Dalek (Stars Of The Lid / Ultrasound/ Cinders)have done a version of Avro Parts 'Spiegel Im Spiegel' and made it their own with some blissed out pedal steel, rhodes and viola. The label describes it as tranquil and I really cannot think of a bet...view item »

My Education

My Education.... nope I'm not talking about how clever I am (or not as the case may be) or what I studied as a child or indeed how I was taught. I am in fact talking about a post rock band from the home of the big cow-burger itself. Yup that be Texas, US of A. Now some of you will remember that the startlingly superb Jonathon Whiskey ...view item »
