BIKE THIEF: bikethief.bandcamp.com
They hail from Texas, but live here now. An instrumental five piece, acoustic and electric guitars sculpting six-string symphonies, that sound like Sergio Leone with a hang-over. Post-apocalyptic folk music, revolutionary romance, dancing in the issues. This is our gypsy rebellion, and any revolution without dancing is not worth taking part in. Off their stage, their personalities could be bright and brash, cocky but devoted to bringing these dusty melodies into the light of the day. In short, I was equipped to not like them, and liked them very much indeed. Febian filled out the skeletons of the songs with beautiful and unique acoustic subtleties, picked and pinched and precise. Symphonic, the best genetics of the post-rock virus. Grand windswept inner visions, sometimes you can say more without words. This band is new, and seem to have their shit together. Anybody that likes Dirty Three, Explosions in the Sky, perhaps Pelican, take heed. Their tone is honed, and the wheels are starting to grind. Get in on the ground floor…
