Agent K(ahunasan) Had to go back and pick up the original 1st EP by these guys; just to chart the progression and development.
The seeds were definitely here at the beginning.
You either love this type of atmospheric instrumental music or you don't.
But its clear to see why this band should be on the "Watch List" of all Post-Rock fans.
Brilliant.
"Stereophonic" alone is worth the price of admission for me! Favorite track: Stereophonic.

Sam Fraser Fantastic wee record from a refreshing heavier style of instrumental music. Record creates an epic atmosphere. 100% worth a listen. Favorite track: Tympanoplasty.

BenjaAmorin Great first work of this awesome band. I really love how this disease has become a masterpiece of intense music. I've made a post on my blog about this record, if you want to check it out: goo.gl/x1Ftg6

Genial primer trabajo de esta increible banda. Me alucina como una dolencia se puede convertir una obra de arte de tanta intensidad. He escrito un post sobre este discaper en mi blog, por si le queréis echar un vistazo ;) goo.gl/to657t Favorite track: Monophonic.

Michael Reilly A quality post-rock album featuring many powerfully dark moments that fluently shift into passages of lighter melodic openess and instrumental ambience. Favorite track: Stereophonic.

about

Inspired by Bruce's struggle with hearing loss, Monophonic takes the listener on an emotional roller coaster. In 2005, doctors discovered a destructive cyst called a cholesteatoma growing inside Bruce's left ear. After surgical removal of the cyst and reconstruction of his ear, he was left with severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and reoccurring ear pain. These emotional experiences were translated into the music and artwork that make up Monophonic.
