Another unheralded band this time around, featuring Self-Evident from Minneapolis in the United States. Featuring an engaging tangle of time signatures and brusque vocals akin to those found on genre-legend Knapsack's releases, Self-Evident bridge the gap between that style of indie-tinged punk-rock and something more melancholy and elegantly restrained. this fusion is brought perfectly together on Endings, their second-newest release, and particularly with tracks like Temporary, Confused and The Past - the latter of which can be found as a gloriously low-budget short film here.

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

I was a bit slow in getting round to this journal. I always leave your journals till the end so that I have time to enjoy your suggestions - I found some excellent tracks here. :thumbsup:
