port-royal + support

Hailed by fans and critics alike as the next evolution in post-millenial post-rock, port-royal's boundless, sandbox approach to the genre fuses elements of ambient techno, shoegaze and melodic IDM, recalling at times the mid-90s output of Orbital and Aphex Twin while indebted to the guitar-driven aesthetic of genre forebears Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

So it goes with port-royal, who were lumped by many into the post rock genre, even though their sound very, very rarely moves into something that would be called rock at all. If anything, the group is creating super-spectral ambient music.
