Next up on the post-rock guitar instrumental front are Rest from Cork in Ireland. Signed to the same Out On A Limb label that brought us Waiting Room (whose debut was reminiscent of old-school Mogwai), they make an early attempt to impersonate Godspeed You! Black Emperor with an explosive ten-minute opener 'Contraceptives'. This soon gives way to several shorter pieces where Rest strive to establish their own sound. 'To Learn' stokes up the fiery tension with further power added by vocals from "Steve" whereas 'Beauty' sees them begin with low-slung glum-rock and then spread their wings into prog rock and metal with generally favourable results. And for all the showy dynamics of 'Mother', 'Is Our Blood Not Enough?' at least bids a sad farewell with Labradford-esque guitars before that too is soon usurped by a barrage of noise. Despite a lack of true identity to make them pioneers, Rest at least demonstrate that they are in the chasing pack.
