So this band is pretty huge. The name Manchester Orchestra has been pretty prevalent in my many readings across the music-related interwebs, but I’ve never actually listened to them until today. I think I’d assumed they were math-rock, which for some reason caused me to steer clear of their tunes. They are, however, an indie/alternative rock band with an ability to go for the epic heights, and to hit them oh so sweetly.
In conclusion, Manchester Orchestra are actually superb. Their new album, Simple Math came out yesterday, and you can stream it below. Tracks Virgin and Simple Math are standouts, with the latter also having an amazing video clip.
