Godspeed You! Black Emperor-Slow Riot for New Zerø Kanada EP (1999)

1999 EP from Canada's post-rock masters, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. This EP showcases more of their trademark lengthy, post-apocalyptic, emotionally-charged, soaring and sweepingly atmospheric post rock of the absolute highest order. As is typical with Godspeed You! Black Emperor releases, one of the songs here prominently features "vox populi" samples that paint a picture of social and moral decay and collapse. Overall, a very bleak, dark, yet absolutely moving and gorgeous recording. As with all Godspeed releases, HIGHLY recommended. Constellation.
