about

Full release of an album that has been subject to overwhelming praise worldwide as a result of the initial pressing on the band's own label last year.

Within the seven tracks of sprawling, intelligent, complex, emotive and thoroughly engaging post-rock totalling over an hour minutes on "Storyboard", the band have produced a staggering debut album, with a widescreen, epic and ultimately very powerful end product that belies their inexperience - the strength being the sensational interplay between the guitars, layered over the drums, with occasional appearances from the xylophone and even a typewriter.

That said, the term 'post-rock' does the band a disservice, as they avoid many of the cliches associated with purveyors of the style and instead display an ability to compose 'songs' that unravel over time while never needing to resort to distortion or the quiet/loud stereotype often employed. The album is self-produced, and was recorded in the library of a primary school.

This Is Your Captain Speaking are a three-piece that hail from Melbourne, Australia, and this first opus promises a great deal. Reviews for the album have been exceptional - see quotes below - with comparisons drawn to the likes of Tortoise, The Necks, Silver Ray and Dirty Three.

Limited to 1000 copies, beautifully packaged in a high-quality card digipack with a twelve-page booklet.
