Temporary Residence, 2012
Maserati's songs are instrumental, but I'd hate to call them a post-rock band, if only because most people equate that with boring. Rather than endlessly building up to crashing crescendos, they charge hard out of the gate and keep the grooves pumping right to the finish line. The have a sound that combines the spacy guitar tones of Dredg, the progressive flair and electronic accents of early Mute Math and Planet of Ice-era Minus the Bear, all tossed in a blender with !!!'s funky, galloping rhythms. The instantly catchy results make for a rare instrumental record that sounds just as good, and maybe better, blasting out of stereo speakers as it does through headphones.
