The great game of catch-up continues today, starting with a Monday song that, I'm sure you'll be glad to hear, isn't an eon long. It is, however, still instrumental, as well as being still awesome. Intrigued? You should be.
I certainly was when I heard that NY in 64 features a couple of members of one of my favourites bands from the last couple of years, East of the Wall. But don't let the fact that half of NY in 64 hails from East of the Wall dissuade you from checking out "A Towering Relic" under the excuse of "it's probably just an EotW clone".
Sure, the first song we're hearing from NY in 64's forthcoming self-titled debut LP is dense and complex, like you might expect. But there's a different feel going on here, and the lack of vocals puts yet another different spin on things. Fans of East of the Wall should feel at home enough, but those who aren't sold on that band should find a little groove of their own here too. Basically everybody should check this one out.
