a silver mt. zion

This band is so gorgeous. Very sparse at times: they sound almost like the kind of classical music that I make in my nightmares. They are vaguely related to godspeed you black emperor in my memory but I am not sure how.

At any rate, the instrumentation is very odd. They use what sound like found sounds, strange electronic devices, as well as cello/viola and drums. Really really beautiful music, the album I have, born into trouble is gentle enough at the end to fall asleep to, after having sex to the stronger, more intense bits. And there is also no vocals that I can discern, just instrumental sound.
