Arab Strap
The Week Never Starts Round Here

Hold up -- it's Arab Strap's first ever record. Without any of the reservations and noble ideas the band would go on to incorporate, The Week Never Starts Round Here sees the band offer fourteen tracks of more innocuous alt rock that still betrays their sensibilities for post-rock and instrumental experimentation.

Big Black
Songs About Fucking

You already know it, but Big Black are Steve Albini's old band of pisstakey punk-churners, offering transgressions at a super-fast rate as they squirm and snarl their way through the classic Songs About Fucking. This was the band's second and last record, offering industrial noise bluster like never before and even propping up a cover of Kraftwerk's "Model".

A Silver Mt Zion
This Is Our Punk Rock

Their punk rock indeed. Nothing, as I'm sure you are aware, like the punk-rock we know but this is theirs remember? The second LP from the Montreal collective consisted of four long pieces and was the first time they'd used vocals. They even put together a choir for the opening track 'Fasola'  - a track which sets the tone for the exuberant spiritual post rock that would follow.

Exhaust
Exhaust

According to the folk at Constellation, Exhaust were one of the groups that made them want to start a label in the first place. It’s a good thing that they did, because otherwise we may never have been able to get hold of the band’s 1998 eponymous debut LP. Exhaust is smoke-hazed, incantatory dub-punk that takes in Guerilla Welfare, mid-period Talking Heads and This Heat.

June of 44
Four Great Points

So you've heard 'Spiderland' and you're wondering to yourself, were there any other bands capable of striking that potent balance of post-rock and hardcore, of beauty and pain? My friends, it is my pleasure to say that yes, there were. June of 44 for example, whose third album is as much a masterpiece as anything Slint managed. Don't believe me? Give the opener on 'Four Great Points' a whirl. Whew.

Exhaust
Enregistreur De Vol Ne Pas Ouvrir

Exhaust don’t get to play together much on account of their members also being in groups like Set Fire To Flames and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. However, in the Summer of 2001 the Montreal trio set some time aside, retreated to a woodland cabin and worked on what became their sophomore LP Enregistreur (De Vol Ne Pas Ouvrir). A bass, drums and tapes setup yielded Enregistreur's lumbering conflagrations of drone, noise rock, post-rock and musique concrete.

Fly Pan Am
Fly Pan Am

Fly Pan Am’s debut LP was one of the records that helped burgeon Constellation’s reputation as an exciting new label when it first came on the scene. The group’s eponymous record - CST008 - remains a fascinating listen two decades later. This is expansive, long-form indie rock that cleverly incorporates techniques from musique concrete. We reckon fellow Montreal band Ought owned copies of Fly Pan Am.

Tortoise
Tortoise

You'll need this. A re-issue of the debut album by Chicago post-rock clever clogs Tortoise. It shows the band finding their feet, beginning to lock into the grooves that would merge together perfectly on the now-classic follow up Millions Now Living Will Never Die. Some of their wilder experimentation was a few years off but sometimes Tortoise sounds better off because of its relative simplicity. Re-issue on Thrill Jockey with lovely screen-printed chipboard sleeve in the style of the original.

Fly Pan Am
Sedatifs En Frequences Et Sillons

After the success of their eponymous debut LP in 1999, Fly Pan Am heralded the new millennium with the Sédatif en fréquences et sillons Edited Player. This most unique of bands were known for blending Slint-ish post-rock with influences from musique concrete as well as making liberal use of electronics and studio techniques. In Sédatif en fréquences et sillons they made another unique set of tracks one that looks to dub and Eno & Byrne’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts. Label mates Godspeed You! Black Emperor help out with some production stuff here.

Gastr Del Sol
Camoufleur

Camoufleur was Gastr Del Sol's final statement and the most compelling album made in their short lifetime. The duo of David Grubbs and Jim O'Rourke had previously made some brilliant but oddball records that sounded something like the Red Krayola updated with 90s technology. Camoufleur though invested their stuttering song craft with orchestral, chamber and harmonic pop, folk and a haunting quality that sounded something like the ashes of Surf's Up-era Beach Boys scattered in a woodland glade. A superb record and one of the very best of the '90s.
