Get to Know: POST
The thing I most love about writing for a music blog is discovering a band that isn't well known yet, but strikes me as the kind of band that can grow and delight you. To my mind, one such band is POST. I put a couple of their songs up on the blog last spring, but they are on my mind again because been busy recording. While the album isn't ready for release, a few unmastered tracks have been made available to whet our interest.
Here is the dark vamp called "New Play Thing". I love the feel and rhythm of this track --

"Monument to a Lost Cause pt. 1" was released earlier on a We Can Still Picnic sampler. It has a delightful indie pop feel --

The band lists home as Glasgow and Manchester. It seems to my ears that their music is grounded in the urban indie pop of that I most identify with Glasgow. Post is Chris Elkin, Adam Florence, Craig Forbes and Graham Wann. Their album is being engineered and co-produced by Emily MacLaren and Stuart Evans at the Green Door studio, Glasgow, and will be released by the We Can Still Picnic collective.
