Plank! are back with their second album of amazingly assured proggy, post-krautrocky instrumentals dedicated to our insect brethren. Their sound combines wistful, Boards of Canada-ish synths with supple bass, super tight energetic drumming and intricate guitar work arranged into kaleidoscopic, math rock workouts. There’s an impressive scope in the  amount of variation in the tracks here-  from the motorik disco of ‘Aphidelity’, to the luxuriant Air-like moodiness of ‘Dark Web’ and the pulsating, Steve Reich style workouts bursting into ecstatic rock of ‘Swarm Behaviour’ and album’s closer ‘Khepri’.

The precision of the musicianship on display makes me think that these would be a pretty amazing live band. But as with many of the post rock bands like Tortoise or 65 Days of Static who kind of pioneered this approach, I can’t help wishing that their sound wasn’t so controlled; that they’d just fuck-up or lose the plot once in a while. But don’t let my personal prejudices put you off, if you’re a fan of intricately arranged, intensely imaginative and tightly executed instrumental rock, chances are you’ll love this.
