Now relocated in Brooklyn from Austin, Windsor For The Derby makes post-rock you can live with, even breathe through. The guitar pared down to a dull chime, the rhythm section minimalist, yet angular, they reflect the post-Stereolab death of rock trend while lacking the pretension (or smooth jazz elements) of Tortoise. You feel touches of electronics without ever hearing them. Few vocals, as well; when they come in on "Stasis" it's reminiscent of Kim Gordon's tracks on Sonic Youth's Evol. This is what thecollege bar bands of 2112 will sound like, should the guitar not be banned as Neil Peart suspects. --D. Strauss

One of the great "post-rock" albums

"Post-rock is a very shady term: all sorts of negative connotations are implied, especially the sort of awful fake jazz that has infiltrated the scene. This record completely steers clear of those excesses and instead provides an excercise in guitar interplay that will remain with me for a long time. An amazingly captivating album that will make you gasp in wonder. There are subtleties everywhere and the centerpiece, "No Techno W/Drums", is completely elegant. This record is perfect."

"I wouldn't like to extend too much. This cd is just brilliant. It may seem a bit dull and predictable st first listen, but it just takes time to grow on you getting deeper and deeper into you after every time you listen to it. Excellent for those melancholic days or for the days when you'd like to remind yourself what melancholy really is. It won't gather dust on your shelf, believe me. Buy it, help these guys make world a better place."
