Stream: Paragraphs You’re Ridiculous (I Love You) (Release show TONIGHT)
There is not, to my knowledge, much of a post-rock scene here in Minneapolis. Despite not being a hotbed for the genre, one band that does always catches my attention when they drop new material is the duo Paragraphs, who are celebrating the release of their new record You’re Ridiculous (I Love You) tonight at the 331 Club in Minneapolis. The record, which you can stream below, finds the band doing what they do best, which is creating gorgeous swells of instrumental music, all crashing waves of guitars, synths, drums. The songs unfold over 40 serene minutes, using astutely built tension to crescendo towards cathartic releases that ebb and flow to pull the listener back in after serenading them into a colorful haze. Like their previous releases, it is confident and well executed album that should impress fans of the genre and bring in some folks who might not already listen to Nocturnity on Radio K each week. Stream the album below and see the band for free tonight at the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis.
