UP C DOWN C LEFT C RIGHT ABC+START (Kent)
Instrumental rockers signed to the Tap'n'Tin label. Kerrang gave their new album KKKK and reckoned:
'errang! album review - 4 KKKK out of 5!
Once the last outpost of pedal junkies, post-rock has now grown and expanded into a diverse and healthy genre, with a lack of vocals and grandiose ambitions as the only real unifying factors. Leading the new vanguard are Up-C Down-C Left-C Right-C ABC + Start - it's the cheat instruction for 'Sonic the Hedgehog' - whose debut is a lesson in musical architecture. Segueing some stirring classical into layer upon layer of guitars that crash like the falling pillars of Pompeii, 'Not Of The Fallen' is indicative of Up-C's deft way with creating high drama with guitars in new ways. Their future looks bright.'
They come with a huge live rep but enough of that, we'll leave the last word to DJ Magazine:
'By the time it's finished with you, you've been assaulted by dense, heavy feedback, angry, growling guitars and enough post-rock to knock out a smack head. Great.'www.upcdownc.com
Majestic undulating sounds from a band who make much more music than a trio has the right to.
[Mt.] are a trio but these four tracks sound every bit like the work of many more hands; really, this is music to which the adjective sky-scraping can effortlessly be applied without fear of stooping to clichÃ©....rarely has its execution been so skilled, and so very well constructed...in short: this is brilliantly realized. - drowned in sound
slint-meets sonic youth dynamism means that its actually pretty fantastic. we'd like to write more but have run out of space... 8/10 - rocksound magazine
