Next week, the great Canadian collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return with “Luciferian Towers”, their newest towering, moving instrumental album. GY!BE have been making monolithic, tough-to-categorize music — it gets called “post-rock,” but “classical punk” might be slightly more accurate — for decades, and they’re as good now as they’ve ever been. “Luciferian Towers” follows 2015’s Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress, and it builds to the same sorts of crashing, life-affirming crescendos. We’ve posted the early tracks “Undoing A Luciferian Towers” and “Anthem For No State, Pt. III,” and now you can stream the full LP at NPR. You should really do that.
“Luciferian Towers” is out 9/22 on Constellation.
