Tiny Tree’s ‘Lion and the Meteor’ is an expansive, refined take on post rock. “Rooted in heavy metal and the post punk/hardcore aesthetic,” these guys say they rely “just as heavily on ambiance, atmosphere and tone as,” they do on “complexity and aggression.” The duo describes itself as, “not so much a band, per se, but as a sonic collective. The two members make up a powerhouse with drummer Paul Jensen and riff master Addison Eilers.” These two definitely have a strong idea of what the orthodoxies of post rock are and all that can be accomplished within them. The duo is unafraid to take its time in constructing and shaping the deep, immersive atmosphere they have going. Under that ambitious guise, a close listen will make the group’s ties to genres like stoner rock, doom metal and crust punk very clear. This is a strong track from a neat band.
