The Foundation, The Machine, The Ascension - 2009

The Murder Of Tom Fitzgerril - 2006

Nostalgia For The Future - 2004

Origin Point:
United States

Sounds Like:
Space Rock, Shoegaze, Alternative, Post Rock, Progressive

Constants push the boundaries of musical genres with this selection of works, blending a noise that's situated between the lush guitar soundscapes and distant vocal renditions of shoegaze, and the crushing walls of noise associated with space rock. While they have released two albums beyond this selection in recent years, neither are close to matching this trio in terms of ambition and intensity, inherently present in The Foundation, The Machine, The Ascension,  a three-disc conceptual epic. However, for me, the Murder Of Tom Fitzgerril release is what I would most strongly recommend; it's a fine marriage of sounds.

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.
