MELT-BANANA is an unstoppable juggernaut of raw energy from Tokyo, Japan. Some songs are explosive conniptions - others are noise delay machine gun heart attacks. One is about dogs. They are all overwhelming. This was also our first interview in which all answers were in a foreign language.
We were incredibly humbled and appreciative that they let us capture this whirring, liberating, organic jackhammer of euphoria.
We were supremely honored to have Godspeed You! Black Emperor give us their (exceedingly rare) blessing to shoot their BottleTree set. True to form, it was epicly long and we won't present it in its entirety but we hope you enjoy this selection. For the uninitiated, GY!BE is an instrumental Canadian experimental/post-rock band from Montreal that spent most of the past decade on hiatus until finally getting back together a few years ago. They have been hugely influential both as Godspeed and through their members' various side projects.
