65daysofstatic Live in Kuala Lumpur 2010

“The sheer intensity of the band’s musical and technical prowess is projected for the world to revel in, cascading every part of their electronic orchestra around your ears and constructing immense soundscapes that defy standards or chart-humping ideals.” – Drowned in Sound

It’s a combustion of man and machine when Sheffield-based post-rock beast 65daysofstatic delivers barrages of crunched guitar, delicate piano, samples and glitches and hardcore drums with a crackling intensity that builds up like static electricity.

Sheffield-based band 65daysofstatic’s are primarily epic instrumental tunes that solidly blend styles and moods. There are the crushing guitars, fuzzy layers and twitching electronic dissonance of post-rock and the somewhat-Mogwai-like “quiet-to-loud-to-very,very loud” song structure, Krautrock-style precision drumming, and math-rock’s peculiar time signatures. But there are also the occasional, unexpected vocals that humanise the music, and the quiet piano that gives the music a surprisingly contemplative edge.

Their first record, The Fall of Math (2004), was an intriguing rush of sound with a stop-start structure, brooding disposition and cathartic endings similar to that of Explosions in the Sky. Their second, One Time for All Time (2005), was an attack described by Stylus magazine as “three men making a fast, wordless, angry and occasionally redemptive noise, part guitar, part drum(machine)s, part piano, part scree, part ****-knows-what.”. But it was their third, The Destruction of Small Ideas (2007), a quieter and more profound album that got critics and music lovers falling over themselves in gibbering adoration, leading to the band’s 2009 recording of a live album Escape from New York.
