9/10 Brian 28 November 2006
After hurling a stack of utterly turgid indie gubbins at me to comment on last week, Phat Phil has mercifully relented & given me some rekkids I can relate to this week. Been a bit weary of the genre once dubbed post-rock recently. It's often sleepy time music but unfortunately it was developing a tendency to send me into a somatic dribble marathon within minutes of take off. So thank heavens for This Is Your Captain Speaking. 'Storyboard' is their much vaunted debut, given a proper worldwide platform now, courtesy of Resonant. A seriously complex but accessible exercise in instrumental guitar textures & emotive layered repetition, It gradually does that thing that only the rarest band (prime Explosions, finest Godspeed etc) can do - that spine tingling sense of unwinding drama & suspense. The drums roll, unfurl & massage whilst the guitars & bass take you on an impassioned & well informed tour of the familiar yet exotic. It never resorts to the Mogwai school of quiet/loud dynamics either, Too sensual & beautiful for all that bludgeoning noise (plus it was recorded in a primary school library!) Quite simply one of the most absorbing records i've heard in this epic 'style'. In a nutshell "Studied without the indulgence". On digipak CD only with a cute as buttons 12 page booklet. Make this your cuddletime album of the month. I will.
