New York's Body Meπa (it's Body Meta, with the "t" being a Pi symbol) released their debut album digitally back in December, with a physical version to be released in May on Hausu Records. The first single off the album, "Horse Flower Storm / Fabuloso" is a gigantically epic instrumental coming in at almost fifteen minutes. The immediate comparisons that come to mind are going to be Mogwai and Explosions In the Sky, with good reason. It has the gigantic, epic noise and aggression of early Mogwai with the gigantic, epic beauty of Explosions In the Sky. For good measure, there is some of the post-punk noise and drone of FACS thrown in. As the song moves on, it drops all of those comparisons completely and takes a bizarre turn into more of a free jazz territory. You probably already know if you're going to want to check "Horse Flower Storm / Fabuloso" out, and if you do you'll be thrilled with what you hear.
You can listen to "Horse Flower Storm / Fabuloso" below. The Work is Slow is due out May 28 on Hausu Records. You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp. For more on Body Meπa, check out the band's Bandcamp.
