I was recently looking up an old friend from high school and ended up discovering a really awesome band in the process. The friend in question has been in countless musical projects during the time I've known him, but I've been out of touch and out of the loop since he moved several years ago. Anyway, his latest project seriously took me by surprise.
The Audiens (pronounced like "audience") is a four-piece instrumental band based in Halifax and you should love them. This song came from their MySpace page, so be sure to pay them a visit if you like it, because they have even more tunes to check out there. I think I still have an earlier demo as well, so I'll have to dig that out again and compare.
I've also made sure they're in good company here at AUPG with tracks by Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, and Fugazi. I guess this post goes out to reader Trevor, who expressed a desire to see more post-rock on this here blog.
