Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Eva Vermandel

In the past, this post-rock institution’s grand proclamations and emotions have usually been abstracted: an old man lamenting his nostalgia for the beach, broken ecclesiastical speeches and long, winding instrumental climaxes… Of course, the last of these is present in abundance on Luciferian Towers, but the lyrics accompanying the album are more explicit, demanding an end to prisons, foreign invasions and borders, and the provision of basic needs as a human right. Hearing the band live has always been a unique event, but its radical leftist politics take on a deeper collective significance amid the contemporary political moment.
