Moo-[sic]

Never has an album made me itch so badly to come online and write about, as has this album called Ganglion by Saltillo.

If you like Shakespeare, like I do, then you'll love this album.

If you like to interpret disjointed fragments of speech into a meaningful snapshot of existence with the help of suitably selected textures of sound creating a believable 'soundscape', then you'll love this album.

If you like post-rock with a liberal use of spoken samples, have explored a variety of genres and generally have no hang-ups regarding genre [any prejudice toward hip-hop, rap and\or poop er... I mean pop, however, IS excusable ]

If you are sick of my faggoty description of the album, here is the link, hehe.

Oh, it is very post-rock like, but there are not guitars but instead you have drums, pianos and violins, and the use of samples as an instrument as well. Hell, there is even an urdu sample in it somewhere not to mention several other strange bedfellows ;)
