Missed Music

Music you didn’t know you needed…until now.

Deep and challenging post rock from Dragon Turtle

This cover is like the album. It is a double helix of burning books. It must mean something really deep, but I have no idea what it is.

If bubble gum pop and nickelodeon rock is at one end of the spectrum, Dragon Turtle’s new release, “Almanac,” is near the far end. I suppose the really chaotic, heavy thrash metal is more opposite. This stuff isn’t really heavy at all, but it is chewy as rawhide and very thoughtfully constructed. It’s not easy to digest, but it is good, if you like bands like Explosions in the Sky or some of Yo La Tengo’s less pop-oriented work.
