Jam of the Week: Godspeed You! Black Emperor


Artist: Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Album: Slow Riot for New Zerø Kanada EP

Genre: Post-Rock

Date: 1999 (Not to be confused with the Prince album)

Sound: Moody, Noisy, Trippy, Awesome

Cool Stuff: I’ve been buckling down with school lately (i.e. procrastinating until now) and need some instrumental jams while studying. Usually I go the Classical or Jazz route, but this time, it’s only been Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Let’s just say there have been some marathon 8 hour silent library head-bob sessions. I put them on par with Sonic Youth in their daring and artful innovation. The wise music nerds on Rate Your Music get it. They call this the greatest EP of all time. You tell me Planet Earth. Silent head-bob time.
