- Parhelion by Silian Rail
Sometimes a record comes in & there's so much love been poured into the packaging that it leaves the music in a kind of secondary place, smothered in a plume of in-consequence by the embossed jacket, burnt copper vinyl and lush nature-celebrating inner. Luckily, as it happens, the music herein is pretty damn fine too! Classic instrumental post-rock but of a more lighter, playful old-skool math-y nature. Let's see.... the drums are tumbling, tight yet frisky; the bass playing solidly anchors the dynamic time structures with the guitar chiming, intertwining & dancing around the songs with grace, subtlety & humour. This band are kings when it comes to arpeggiated riffs & tender interludes, many jazzy & occasionally feisty moods are explored. This is the kind of intricate music a lot of Chicago based bands dallied with in the 90s/early 00's as well as Brits Billy Mahonie, Danes Diefenbach (before they went a bit "pants") and short-lived local Leeds heroes such as The Dragon Rapide who also indulged in this breezy, cerebral form. So it's refreshing to hear the style revived so expertly!
