Post-rock: Les Raisins de la Colère share epic track titled ‘Jam’.

Les Raisins de la Colère

French post-rock experimentalists Les Raisins de la Colère (The Grapes of Wrath, you uncultured swine) have shared a new track titled ‘Jam’. A track that seems to be equally influenced by Western films and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, it swirls and slithers through a luxurious pace that gently ups the tension until it envelopes the listener in a delicate but powerful embrace.

An oud.

One of the central instruments utilised by the band is the oud. I’d never heard of it, but it is an Arabic instrument that bears a resemblance to a lute (see picture above). It’s my new favourite instrument as it conjures a mystical atmosphere full of foreboding.
