This month The Facemelter features some truly brilliant veterans of post-rock, drone and ambient sounds, with new and seasoned projects alike.

Flies are Spies from Hell

Formed 13 years ago, this band has climbed up from humble beginnings to international fame.

The years have seen them move on from small local gigs, to sharing the stage with behemoths such as Russian Circles, And So I Watch You From Afar, *shels, Latitudes and Vessels, to a couple of European tours, and appearances at ArcTanGent and Dunk!festival.

One year after the release of their second album 'Underdog Underfoot', they'll finally grace the stage at The Facemelter.

A-Sun Amissa

A powerful, (mostly) instrumental collective, founded and led by Richard Knox (Shield Patterns, Glissando, The Rustle of the Stars) and Angela Chan (Tomorrow We Sail, Lanterns On The Lake, The Rustle of the Stars) that has featured an array of members and collaborators since its formation in 2011, as well as two albums out on Gizeh Records.

Producing dense, drone-like atmospheres with evocative, melodic string and woodwind sections, intertwining guitars and field recordings, their live performance is a mixture of recorded output combined with improvisation to explore progressions in the music every time.

Their ever-flowing lineup of collaborators have included members of Amenra, Nadja, Gnod, Oiseaux-Tempête and Hundred Year Old Man.

Back to the days when Godspeed You! Black Emperor came into our lives with their dark and apocalyptic music, warning of pre-millennial doom and despair. - The Line Of Best Fit

Gorgeous, shimmering and shuddering - The 405

Only Echoes Remain

Serving up incredibly cinematic post-rock, without becoming too cliched thanks to generous smatterings of math, ambient and classic prog influences, OER have already played with the likes of Her name is Calla, TOTORRO, VASA, Poly-Math and Waking Aida, and will be releasing their debut LP early this year.

Well constructed, thoughtful post-rock. - Echoes And Dust
