♫♪  A Winged Victory for the Sullen - “Atomos VI”

A Winged Victory for the Sullen isn’t a complicated group of musicians. Maybe their composure sometimes cracks while creating breathtaking tracks like “Atomos VI,” but typically, their patience for drawn attention from listeners is merely a practice in being elaborate. As everyone’s mind wanders during A Winged Victory for the Sullen, “Atomos VI” (the sixth track of numerically listed tracks on their newest album Atomos out Oct. 6 on Kranky Records and Erased Tapes) lays down a foundation of relief. Something of the Tim Robbins sort when he escapes from Shawshank Prison, yeah. And it’s SUPER relevant that bands like this stick around and continue grinding out music (i.e., that post-rock swag?) so culture doesn’t die, individualism is stifled once more in our self-centered American society, and future generations can see how people worked together on music that’s potentially just as lasting as some familiar overtures and sonatas.

TO REPEAT: I’d be wise of you to scope A Winged Victory for the Sullen’s “Atomos VI” streaming below, and eventually snag their LP Atomos this October 6 via Kranky Records and Erased Tapes:
