Upcdowncleftcrightcabc+start are a right bunch of nobbers. That's what I did on my computer keyboard and it downloaded a load of Armenian donkey porn and cyber spaff. Also I hate them because their last album just kept on selling and selling and everytime you ordered one in, someone else bought another one and you constantly had to say their name to the rep every couple of bloody days which was a right shitting ballache I can tell thee. I reckon it was some big situationist prank and i'm probably on YouTube being laughed at by fat American children. 'Embers' is their second full length and I have to say, regardless of being bored silly by "post-rock" a few years ago, this lot have a meaty dynamism & their use of electronics is refreshingly understated. They endorse all the usual dinky guitar shapes, moving strings, tersely building dramatics, grandoise drum movements and neo classical flourishes. It's a pompous yet warmly endearing album that fares better for me than their debut. The production is vast and would be suitable to be used to advertise the Scottish tourist board, all wide open vistas and desolate beauty. Pretty cool for this sort of thing. Good stuff in nice package with booklet. CD only.
