• Godspeed You! Black Emperor "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven" 2LP
Restock! Price increased.
Double CD/Vinyl release from 9 member ensemble performing 4 very long and spacey tracks. What else could you ask for? "Lift your skinny fists." easily draws the listener into that relaxed mental spacial void where all one can consider is relaxation. All 4 songs are super long and highly exploratory in nature. GODSPEED's music swoops across some pretty vast moods and tempo changes. Title and opening track "Lift Your Skinny fists" opens with a simply breathtaking slow cello/violin and guitar driven symphony which builds and builds culminating into one huge reservoir sounding explosion reminding me of a mix of KING CRIMSON and SPIRITUALIZED. Basically the opening track sets the stage for the rest of the album with all other songs fitting in similar format. GODSPEED are a 9 piece instrumental ensemble who play unique symphonic space chamber music. Their delivery is warm and passive with sincere emotion and high musicianship. I personally can't get enough of their full rich sound when all players get into the fray... a sonic bonanza for your brain
