MP3 of the Week: Henry Gale, "Stay Warm"

DOWNLOAD: Henry Gale, "Stay Warm" 

We’re suckers for a good Lost reference, so when we stumbled across a band named Henry Gale while skipping through the fields of MySpace, we approached their music with the same cautious optimism any Lost fan accords another on first meeting. It paid off: these guys are good. Like many post-rock bands, Henry Gale (an instrumental four-piece specializing in post-rocky bombast à la Explosions in the Sky or our own Common Cold) just love guitars that veer between twinkling loopage and soaring textures. Unlike many post-rock bands, they don’t take forever getting to the part that rocks, they do it from the get-go. Catch the release party for their nifty new EP, Other Voices, at the Middle East downstairs on November 24, where they’ll be joined by Guillermo Sexo, City of Ships, and Doomstar. And in the meantime, grab the MP3 of “Stay Warm" above.
