Last year we highlighted Red Hands Black Feet at Boise’s Treefort Music Festival, and now they have come out with their first studio album, These Things Are Important. This Boise band pumps out some super fresh post-rock music. The album starts off with a drone-y intro that leads into a sweet western bluesy jam called “Django’s Last Ride.” All of their songs include an epic climax of pure rock pleasure. It is hard to say which track I like the best since each one has it’s own personality. These Things Are Important is a great album all the way through from the opening piano hit to the last shredding notes of “Sink The Bismark.” Make sure you listen to it all the way through.
Another post-rock Boise band that I would like to share today is Ugly Hussy. More on the side of noise rock, Ugly Hussy has elements in his music along the lines of Modest Mouse and Gauntlet Hair. The music is so melodious but with a intrusive quality that doesn’t let you forget that you’re listening to it. With a performance coming up at Treefort Music Fest, hopefully there will be some new recordings to come out soon. The 2011 EP is down below, be sure to check it out. I really like the opener “Convenient Cave” and the closer “Black Boa.”
