This is the first Rachel's album and I remember thinking at the time "why are these former members of Rodan and Hulahoop playing classical music"? I didn't understand back then what it was but I knew I liked it. Then came 'Music For Egon Schiele' and it was obvious something quite special was going on. But this is where it started - totally beautiful, unique music that is here to stay.
It's important for alt-country bands to be in Belgium performing live at some point in their lifespans (maybe), and that's eactly what Calexico managed to do with Ancienne Belgium. This record captures the band' in 2008 at a point of established maturation, their twang well enforced and their instrumentals well realised.

Rodan’s very influential Rusty LP here. While this may be the Kentucky band’s only full-length record (we’re not counting 2013’s odds-and-sods collection Fifteen Quiet Years), the fusion of technicality and power on the tracks here still exerts a strong influence on the worlds of post-hardcore and math-rock. People often write the words Slint and Spiderland in close proximity to Rusty, and there’s a reason for that.
