This week's edition of the Sunday Soundcheck looks at the tragically short-lived Redjetson, an English band who were one of the first to fully experiment with post-rock aesthetics and indie rock sensibilities. Their sound lies somewhere between jagged melancholy of the sort that bands like Interpol and Editors became famous for, and slow brooding instrumental passages. Their first album, New General Catalogue, is a masterful listen. The second was released after their 2008 split, and carries a lighter and more radio-friendly sound.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
