Admittedly, post-rock is a sub-genre that I just don’t get. Not that there is anything wrong with it; in fact pretty much all of the post-rock bands that I have heard are extremely accomplished musicians. They just happen to play a style of music that is beyond me. When I got the press release for U137’s new album Dreamer on the Run, I almost dismissed it out of hand based solely on the genre of the music, but instead I decided to give the record a listen and boy am I glad that I did. Dreamer on the Run is a lush record that honestly sounds more like the score to a major motion picture than it does a rock ‘n’ roll record. The sounds on this record are huge and soaring and pull at the heart in so many different ways…it really is a thing of beauty. Some studio needs to pick these two guys up quick so they can get the Oscars that they obviously deserve (oh, did I forget to mention that U137 is a duo?).
