Deep Politics is Grails’ 8th album, and is it turns out it’s one that proves to be particularly divisive on this episode!
Chris and David both found this band at different points, with Chris being a fan from the early days and David joining a bit later. What results is a pretty cool discussion around this band’s discography, the highlights and lowlights, as well as providing insight into how people’s views of bands changes over the course of their lives.
Grails do a pretty good job of splicing arcane psychedelia and krautrock with large swathes of Constellation style/Spiderland-era Slint post rock. Something they do to (mostly) good effect. Depending on who you ask, of course…
This album - actually scratch that - this band has received their fair share of critical acclaim over the years. Despite the fact all three of us don’t quite agree with the critics, some illuminating conversation does follow!
