Sprawling post-rock from the Swiss mountains.

Equus is an obscure act that has only released two albums to date; however, their sound is remarkably astute within the genre of instrumental music. Their début is a sprawling, hypnotic ocean of a record, tinged as much by 1970s progressive bands as much as anything contemporary. Their second release changes direction substantially, forging a similar path to the offbeat releases of This Will Destroy You and Year Of No Light with a silent film-score composition that borders on drone and deconstructed ambient rhythm. While far removed from their first effort, it's just as atmospherically powerful.

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.
