Here at Feedback we love our jobs and we are lucky enough to get to hear new releases from bands and artists to check out. One band in particular which has caught our attention of late is Montréal, Canada quartet Milanku. They have recently unleashed their jaw dropping release Pris à La Gorge via Moment of Collapse records. Music like that of Milanku’ is the reason we do what we do, letting people know about awesome bands and music that should be heard around the world more. Pris à La Gorge is eight songs of flawlessly executed Post-Hardcore/Post Rock clocking in just shy of sixty minutes. Opening number ‘La Chute’ is a slow burning masterpiece and has to be the albums Pièce de Résistance. Vocals are few and far between and the group let the music do the talking and it works. ‘L’inclination’ has a pile driving rhythm and some short slow intersections that build the anticipation and expectation of the group to break into top gear. ‘Antalgie’ rages with pitiless intensity and is one of the shorter songs here at just over five minutes in length. Final track ‘Antigone’ is a beautiful instrumental piece that closes the record perfectly, featuring a slow and spectral banjo melody. In our opinion, this is a release that can be revisited time and time again, it just keeps on giving. The album is obtainable on black vinyl now through German label Moment of Collapse.
