… the enigmatic post-rock instrumental of Montreal’s Godspeed You! Black Emperor for their 2012 masterpiece ( and my twentieth favourite album of 2012) Alleluia! Don’t Bend! Ascend!
I have championed it since it was shortlisted. They’re not an easy band- twenty-minute noisy instrumentals that mix freestyle jazz and Can (the band) wonk is a tough sell to the masses. But honestly, it’s still heavily played at my house, and I am loving it as much today as I did when it was released late last year.
