Songs Tomification Thinks You Should Listen To #4 - Antennas to Heaven: Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Tomification says - The final track on Godspeed You! Black Emperor's 80 minute all instrumental epic 'Lift Your Skinny Fists like Antennas to Heaven'. I'm a sucker for melancholic sounding music, and this track fits the bill perfectly, at 18 minutes it is a bit of an investment if you just want to hear a new track, but is massively rewarding if you stick with it. The type of music you'd listen to if you knew you weren't coming back from somewhere, a final bang, followed by an ethereal, droning whimper. This is the type of rock that means something, forget pub night ballads about wooing some slag, or cheesy guitar-carried love songs and immerse yourself in this song. Let it rock you and lay you down. Like crashing waves in the sea at midnight, or the flashing broadcasts of some far-off galaxy echoing in the dark emptiness of space.
