Magyar Posse: We Will Carry You Over the MountainsCD, Verdura 2002

Track list: Sleepwalker - Witchcraft - Singlesparks Are Spectral Fires - Pacific Ocean / Death in the Desert - - Enemy Within - The Endless Cycle of Violence - Lufthan

I heard Magyar Posse live in the Aisti festivals and loved them. So, of course I bought their debut album when it came out. And I like them still! The closest comparison I can come up with is to Godspeed You Black Emperor. Style is the same, instrumental music with some soundtrack quality in it. There are similar crescendo structures, too. There are beautiful melodies ("Singlesparks..." being perhaps the best example) and good rhythm. It's a very good album - only really negative side being the stupid name of the band. ****

I read it from an interview... I suppose you're interested in the "Magyar" part of it, that's from an Hungarian wine bottle they were drinking at the time...

thx Mikko. i'm hungarian /magyar/, too but i live in transylvania, and i found this band name, never heard them.

I think it´s a bit strange that they are often compared to Godspeed, ok there are similarities, but it´s more like a genre thing than copying, i think. anyway, it´s one of the best albums of 2002!!

I don't think the name of the band is stupid. It's quite cool. And I'm not Hungarian.

On the other hand, the album resembles me of Sonic Youth's "Made in USA" and, of course, GYBE!'s evrything.
