I’ve been stumbling upon some awesome bands this week, like England’s Amplifier. Ever heard of them? I most certainly have not, although Wikipedia tells me the trio has been around for 12 years. Nevertheless, I found myself on their Bandcamp page yesterday jamming their new Fractal EP on repeat for quite some time. It consists of four very laid back and textural instrumental tracks-it is relaxing but exploratory and somewhat creepy in spots. Very jazzy stuff, and apparently the entire thing is improvised and ‘uncorrected’. How many bands do that these days?
It’s definitely a nice listen, and you can download it for free at Amplifier’s Bandcamp page. Like I said, it’s not metal, but the whole thing is only 23 minutes long, so you will be back to blasting Deicide in no time. Check it out!
