Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Godspeed! You Black Emperor make music for eschatonists and movie lovers, and not just because their song “East Hastings” was the perfect choice for the opening scene in the post-apocalyptic zombie nightmare 28 Days Later. Their wildly imaginative topography of sound envelopes listeners in much the same way a darkened theater does, surrounding audiences with eerie, uneasy beauty that is transportive and often trance-inducing. Here’s hoping that their work is powerful enough to override their unfortunate move from the Showbox at the Market to the markedly less intimate Showbox SoDo. With Thrones. HANNAH LEVIN
