Have you heard of Vessels?

Over the past few months I've become more and more interested in post-rock, and I was pleased to have been recently passed along some tracks from a new post-rock band from Leeds, UK who call themselves Vessels. The quartet self produced, self released, and self-titled debut in 2006 consisting of five tracks filled with great rising and falling movements and pounding, powerful climaxes. Popular English disc jockey and BBC Radio host Steve Lamacq referred to Vessels' sound as "Dynamic post rock which stalks around your room before launching itself through a window." Take a few minutes to hear two tracks from their debut EP below...

Vessels - Look At That Cloud!
Vessels - Armed To The Teeth
