Stream Godspeed You! Black Emperor's New Album

Whether you're into the kind of highly experimental, post-rock music that Canada's Godspeed You! Black Emperor make or not, you should definitely check out their new album.  I've heard of this band for a long time and knew they've been around since the 90s, but I've never listened to any of their music until this.  I understand now why so many people love this band and hype them to death.  This album consists of two 20 minute songs and two six and a half minute ones, and it is unlike anything I've ever heard.  Literally, I've never heard anything quite like this or really even close to this.  The songs build to huge climaxes like those of other post-rock bands such as Explosions In The Sky, but they are more epic and powerful than any song of this type I've heard.  I'm really at a lack of words to express what this music even is.  Definitely give it a listen, especially if you like music that makes you feel like you are ascending into the great unknown as you're listening to it.  Oh, did I mention the album is called HALLELUJAH!  DON'T BEND!  ASCEND!  The title really says it all.  Stream the whole album below.
