Thank You Thursday, July 03, 2008
Sounding a bit like our favorite Krautrock bands of the seventies, Thank You pulls off a simpler, fiercer version of the long-form rock jam that comes closer in sound to more current bands like Brooklyn's Parts & Labor or Oneida. The fact that two of them, Jeffrey McGrath and Michael Bouyoucas, can each stretch out on guitar and keyboard (simultaneously on occasion) gives them a broad sonic pallet they employ skillfully in their inventive, original compositions. Paired with the full-on assault of Emmanuel Nicolaidis on the drums, the band achieves, and is able to sustain, a heightened level of intensity that makes their tracks both epic and powerful. Two of these guys, Michael and Emmanuel, played in former Airplay band More Dogs back in '06.
