Ok, so post-rock bands are coming out of the woodwork with a mix of breathtaking and not so impressive results, depending on which bands you listen to. Detwiije, Bark Psychosis, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, My Educationand Mogwai happen to be some of the greats. I think that now we can add to the list God is an Astronaut. Hailing from Dublin, this three-piece space/post-rock band makes beautiful soundscapes and breathtakingly use volume and noise control to make epic lands of sounds and energy. The emotive element in their music is infused with their great compositions. Being only three members, this band produces music that sound like much more than that and must do musical gymnastics in their stage show to get things done. All is Violent, All is Bright is their second offering and the title is perfect for what the listener encounters inside. Torsten Kinsella (Vocal, Guitar, Keys), Niels Kinsella (Bass, Guitar, Artwork, and Visuals), and Lloyd Hanney (Live Drums, Loops, and Synths) are the masterminds behind this impressive disc.

"Fragile" eases the listener in with beautiful layers of keys and minimal guitar. This moves into killer drum loops and Torsten's Sigur Ros style vox that really add another instrument to the song. Keys add a "windy" feel and the song just draws you into their musical world. I was listening to this in my office while thunder and rain blasted against my windows. It was one of those epic listening moments. Eventually, the song explodes with voices, heavy guitars, and strong live drums. The effect is momentous and perfectly timed. One of the first things I noticed about this band is their attention to details and the small nuances they place in the song. "All is Violent, All is Bright" begins with an ominous, low layer of keys.

It's way too hard to track down CDs by God is an Astronaut. The quality of work across their releases is uniformly high and displays a genuinely concise approach: tightly structured, unadorned, precisely detailed pieces that never over stay their welcome, never exhaust their premise. And, so far, their latest is only available in the UK. Silly industry is music!

Before applying the "post rock" label, God is an Astronaut deserves broader consideration. On the continuum between the socially poignant and profoundly innovative work of God Speed You, Black Emperor! to the artful intransigence of Silver Mount Zion, the Gordian Knots of Red Sparrowes and ending in the ditch of the mindlessly dull style scrambles of Explosions in the Sky, this particular God straddles the sweet spot in the center. Not burdened with the politically charged audio verité of the former, unencoded by art house abstraction, and gleefully free of the rampant and clueless guitarism of the latter, the music found on "All is Violent, All is Bright" marks out that hard to set boundary defined by understatement and symmetry.

At times there is the clockwork sort of automatic purity present, first heard on Michael Rother's earliest post- Neu! solo albums (Flammende Hertzen and Katzenmusik). Not loopy, and not nearly as emotionally neutral as Rother, God is an Astronaut is more than capable of developing the most convincing and affecting contrasts of tension and release applied with purpose while staunchly avoiding the outright ostentation of more commonplace and simplistic showmanshipiness. Fine, fine work that encourages active listening as well as offering rewards to those who appreciate consistently subtle timbral atmospherics.

This band falls in a genre that I have been discovering lately. Part rock, part alternative, part electronic. Other bands I have been listening to, among others, are Explosion in the Sky, If These Trees Could Talk, and This Will Destroy You. While I enjoy these bands, I believe God is an Astronaut brings something new to the mix. Maybe it's just me, but the way the band creates melodies in which all the instruments come together to create a unique, penetrating sound that just takes you away, makes you feel part of the music, is just stunning. I strongly recommend this album to all fans of the genre, you will not be disapointed! Excellent release, I'm waiting for more.
