The Top Ten Albums Of 2011: Number 9

Number 9: And So I Watch You From Afar-Gangs

Unquestionably the Irish album of the year in my opinion, Belfast instrumental band And So I Watch You From Afar probably got the least press attention. The trio produce math-rock/post-rock with extraordinary instrumentation and skill. Their second album ‘Gangs’ was a shock to me upon discovering it, as I didn’t think an Irish band anywhere had this attention to detail and talent. ‘BEAUTIFULUNIVERSEMASTERCHAMPION’ is a sight to behold when played live and it is a terrific start to this. ‘Think:Breathe:Destroy’ is terrific while ‘Lifeproof’ is a fitting finale.
