Since starting Audioeclectica, I’ve developed a more mature appreciation for instrumental bands. In the past I would generally bypass them, unless I were at a festival or needed background music. The great thing about instrumental bands is the journey they take you on, leaving it all open to interpretation and your imagination. This weeks band of the week, If These Trees Could Talk, hooks you in with their gentle sounds, then pulls you in further as the music gets deeper and heavier. The band sites Mogwai, Tool, Red Sparowes, …And you will know us by the trail of dead as their main influences. And you can tell that there are elements of each of those bands in their music. If These Trees Could Talk released 3 albums through The Mylene Sheath before signing to Metal Blade records. Their new album is slated to be released late 2015 or early 2016. Keep track of this band, as I’m sure they will be a band to look out for in the post-metal world.
