My Education: "Homunculus"

In spite of being from the same town as Explosions in the Sky, Austin's own My Education eschew the wind chime bombast of that band - who are possibly the most well known of the so called "post-rock" groups in spite of being relative latecomers to the party - for a sax-driven, surf-inflected instrumental groove on "Homunculus". I don't know, maybe these post-rock bands are starting to get a little self-conscious over mainstream acts such as Coldplay co-opting their twinkletoes steez and are heading the opposite direction, toward more of a Jesus Lizard caco-scuzz.

A Drink for All My Friends is out November 27 on Haute Magie.
