Instead of working on this post, I spent the last two evenings reading. So instead of giving you a new band and new album to check out (sorry Groundhog Day. You’ll shine next week!) I’m giving you one of my favorite bands/albums of the last 5 years.
The Derby, Uk band, along with My Heart To Joy, were my introduction to Topshelf Records and more importantly, the emo revival. In a lot of ways, Crash of Rhinos reminds me of Braid and Texas is the Reason, with the band throwing in some Mineral and American Football style twinkle on the second half of the album.
You can download Knots (and the band’s 2011 record Dista) at https://crashofrhinos.bandcamp.com/
