Review: Mono – Hymn to the Immortal Wind (2009)

Genre: post-rock, instrumental, ambient
Label: Temporary Residence Limited
Country: Japan
Listen: MySpace

Instrumental post-rock from Japan. The band focusses largely on soundscaping and ambience which makes for a different listen compared to most post-rock acts. The music is very soothing and slowly pulls you along to a snowy mountain top from where you can gaze over the valley you will descend to after a while. Beautiful, relaxing and just enough tension to retain its appeal.

This review was previously released elsewhere.
