It’s been a while since I’ve posted some post-rock and as I’ve been sitting on this one for a bit it seems about the right time. Anyway, as its raining cats and dogs outside it wouldn’t seem right to shower you with a blast of indie pop. As you might expect Blackpool don’t come from Northern England (it’s like that, it’s just the way it is), they instead forage for gale force wipeouts from their base in San Francisco. The band have only recorded 1 album ‘Yamamama’ which seems to have disappeared off the face of the internet. A shame really because ‘Fusillade’ is quite promising, building incrementally until it sounds like the entire luftwaffe is passing overhead. Chord secreted melodies burst forth throughout and even though it climaxes in a thunderous volley of noise it pleasingly never requires a dampening of the volume. KD
