For me, currently the best Postrock track ever released…. listen to the band Frames – Don’t Stay Here!
This single track is THE reason that Postrock is one of the best and emotional genres within the rock-sphere. Loud piano’s, almost metal-esque sounding guitars, xylophones, slow and fast segments … this track is an emotional tour de force. At the fast segments, this track has such a full sound that leaves you in awe.
The first 30 seconds slowly draws you into this song. After that, there’s the quiet drumming, dramatic piano and the first (slow) guitar tunes. At the 1:35 mark the guitar slowly gets the upper hand and at the 2:08 mark…. well……the first epic part of the track that combines everything that’s great about this track. It lifts your spirit, you can’t sit still, happiness all over! At 3:10 the piano takes the lead for a quiet dreamy atmosphere that lasts for almost 3 minutes, before the piano introduces you again to full eruption of this volcano-like track. The drums, synthesizer, metal-esque guitar riffs, the piano in the background….. I’ll quit blabbering… listen for yourself and spread the word…Frames… thanks for this track!
Don’t stay Here is the 8th track of the album In via, released by “Frames” in april 2012.
