This instrumental post-rock album came out in 2007, but I only heard it after I saw Explosions In The Sky at ATP in 2009. I became obsessed with this album. It’s music to get lost in, rich and atmospheric. I used to put this album on when I was going to sleep. Though it’s sometimes loud and raucous, I still find it melodic and soothing. I keep returning to this album after nearly ten years, so I’m going to go ahead and recommend it to you. Find it in your preferred music format or platform.
Cycles is the debut album by Any Joy. If you read the About page on this website, you know I’m playing synth in this band, so I can’t claim this is an unbiased recommendation. But Oisin recorded the album before putting the band together, and I joined the band after I had already seen them play live at the album launch. I objectively liked this before I was involved in any way. You should listen to the album right now. But if you get a chance to see us playing live, that’s what I really want to recommend.
If you’re a vinyl person, you can order that on Bandcamp (limited edish). And here’s a music video for ‘Avert Yer Eyes’, the first song on the album. The video was made by Mac Premo Inc., I’m blown away by the way it’s turned out. Amazing work.
Look at them there, a great bunch of lads.
I like this band. I like this song. I like the album “Sunshine Hit Me”. One of the songs was in a Bulmers ad. I don’t have to write a review or do a bunch of research to recommend something. Find it in your preferred music service or format. Just press play.
