Alarmist

Sequesterer

(Small Pond)

Among the survivors of the early-oughties post-rock revival, Dublin ‘instrumental maximalists’ Alarmist have lasted the test of time by keeping their powder dry over the years.

Following a pair of EPs and debut album Popular Demain, each separated by years and label changes, Sequesterer feels like a move into a greater comfort with themselves and their influences, shifting from contemporary math/post-rock on District of Baddies, to jazz and skittering electronics, to moments of Yellow Magic Orchestra-style bliss.
