Barcelonian post-rock outfit Exxasens are yet another strong collective of purely instrumental, but tremendously skilled craftsmen that deserve their spot in the European scene. Baikonur, from third album Eleven Miles, hovers between space and Earth, as a bird in flight over a blood-red sunset would. Guitars growl, trills resonate beautifully, drums sound stripped down, creating that live illusion but the best feature is the piano through out that adds that extra emotional depth to an already stellar sonic landscape. Their skill lies in their subtlety, which makes their music seem so much more human than a lot of all-guns-blazing post-rock bands, paint a mental picture of everyday natural phenomena and Exxasens will create a soundtrack for it.
