Featuring over 30 first-hand interviews with some of the most prominent names in post-rock – including Mogwai, Tortoise, Steve Albini, Mono, Isis, Slint and God Is An Astronaut – alongside analysis of key records that changed the face of music, Storm Static Sleep will open your eyes – and ears – to one of music’s most exciting genres.
“In some ways ‘post-rock’ is just a continuation of impulses that crop up within the progressive era, and then again with post-punk. Leaving behind rock, taking on outside influences, responding to the cutting edge of black music, etherealizing to the point of losing the rhythmic pulse ” Simon Reynolds, Author/Journalist.
“I was really into anti-guitar, anti-chops, anti-solos. I just wanted to f*ck it up.” David Pajo, Slint.
“We never had a discussion about it, just as we never talked about whether there should be vocals. It was just like, ‘okay – let’s try something’. I guess we were just interested in seeing what we could do with the resources we had available.” - John McEntire, Tortoise, Gastr Del Sol, Bastra.
“I remember the first time someone asked about it [post-rock] and I had no idea what they were talking about.” Stuart Braithwaite, Mogwai.
The album was written largely by Tom (Vocals/guitar) and Adam (Drums/keys) sending countless demo’s to each other over several years. Navigator is a story of dreams that fail and do not materialise as youth slips away. It is the story of leaving one life behind and heading into the unknown of another. It is a story of losing love, life, faith and identity, and the great depression that brings. More importantly, it is about finding the way back home again.
