Flies Are Spies From Hell bring you A Cheery Wave From Stranded Youngsters: Volume Two

April 4th 2011

This just in from excellent Chichester-based post-rock band Flies Are Spies From Hell, who have compiled another well-constructed compilation of like-minded bands from across the land - 

A fresh new post-rock compilation is available for free download now!!

The second instalment in Flies Are Spies From Hell's compilation series is out now - "A Cheery Wave From Stranded Youngsters: Volume Two" contains some of the very best bands involved in the underground UK post-rock/instrumental scene right today..

    This peek into the murky fertile undergrowth includes a track from brand new Oxford supergroup Listing Ships, a completely unreleased and unheard song from The Rock Of Travolta, a Vessels B-Side, and track from Maybeshewill's "Sing The Word Hope" album. You Slut!'s math-mentalism, Leyaks' proggy psych-out, Bleaklow and Khuda's post-metal beasts, Orders Of The British Empire's huge epic and MinionTV's moment of peace further show how strong the scene has become. The album closes with a metallic Kasper Rosa monster - which even includes a guitar solo........

  The Vessels' page in particular contains lots of info on all these bands, and I'm already thrilled to see news that You Slut! are completing a new album...
