Band Watch: NOMADIC SOUND DIVISION
If you’re into self-proclaimed “kickass instrumental post-rock”, look no further than three-piece post-rockers Nomadic Sound Division. Hailing from Toronto, ON the trio count rock heavyweights Muse, Frank Zappa, The Mars Volta, Queens Of The Stone Age, Rush, Sloan, and Thrush Hermit among their influences – and these are only the ones that are readily evident at first listen.
The band was formed a little over a year ago by drummer Carmen Branje (of late punk band Hollywood Swank) and guitarist Rob Skelhorn (of Treestar). Soon joined by bassist Brendan Haig, the trio set out to create some crazy live antics – and word around Toronto is that they’re suceeding in spades.
Head on over to their MySpace and check out some of the demos they’ve got kicking around – we recommend Destroyed Mountain and Squid Sandwich. No word on a full EP yet, but we’ll be keeping an ear to the ground to see what’s coming down the pipeline, and so should you.
