THE END OF THE OCEAN
The End Of The Ocean is an instrumental post-rock band from Columbus, Ohio. From their start in early 2009, The End Of The Ocean has had a penchant for crafting soundtrack-esque athems that move freely from beautiful to trippy to heart-tugging to fist clenching. Heavily influenced by mid 90′s emo and shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Mineral, The Appleseed Cast, American Football, Planes Mistaken for Stars), and their post-rock contemporaries (Mono, Envy, Explosions In The Sky), The End Of The Ocean utilizes intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios, and a vast range of effects to craft beautiful, nostalgic and refreshingly unique memorable songs.
Combined elements of shoegaze, heavy riffs, classical themes and other varying elements into their sweeping instrumentals.
AN AESTHETIC ANAESTHETIC
An Aesthetic Anaesthetic is a 4-piece Instrumental Post Rock band from Chicago, IL who is straying away from their typical scene. A!A!A takes all of the best parts of Punk, Metal, and Post Rock to create their own genre, Ghost Rock. With influences ranging from Fugazi to Pelican and Mogwai, An Aesthetic Anaesthetic’s songs have epic builds, heavy breakdowns, mathy verses, and still manage to leave their songs stuck in your head.
Their live show is even more rewarding than their recordings. Keeping the Punk Rock aesthetic on stage, An Aesthetic Anaesthetic is not afraid to throw down, often times walking off the stage a bloody mess.
An Aesthetic Anaesthetic’s music will surge your body with happiness one second, then fill you with blinding rage in one fell swoop.
Rhone is a thematic, instrumental rock band. This one would like to think that they are working on adding a new flavor to the genre, incorporating influences like jazz, classical and sludge rock.
