52 Commercial Road: A Wreck Provides An Excellent Foundation

London based post-rockers 52 Commercial Road have been a fringe act since 2003, playing art exhibitions and squat parties. Their new full length A Wreck Provides An Excellent Foundation is filled with meandering soundscapes explorations topped off with choral vocals. Throw in spoken word samples and you get a haunting collection of songs that is continuation of Pink Floyd ca. Atom Heart Mother.

The band take their time building up their songs, by adding instruments and loops as a song progresses. It's all about structures settling into a slow groove - subliminal math rock that is smart and subtle.
