Mustard After Dinner - An Anthology of Fighting Kites
Another album to file under "Anthologies of bands that may have slipped through the cracks", Audio Antihero seem to be making a habit of releasing albums in this niche genre after putting out a similar collection by Tempertwig just a few months ago. Here they've teamed up with Old Money Records to release a 22 track anthology of Fighting Kites' material. The band were active between 2006 and 2012 and featured Neil Debnam (aka Broken Shoulder), David Stewart and Daniel Fordham (who went on to form The Drink) and Luke Johnson who runs The Gorgie Go-Getters (a band for adults with learning difficulties). This is a collection that showcases their slow and sad, but melodic post rock stylings. The band were clearly influenced by classic US post rock, but you can also see how their own take on it has influenced fellow Audio Antihero alumni such as Benjamin Shaw Who appears on the closing track.
The album is available via bandcamp and spotify now, so go and get it.
