my education is an American instrumental post-rock band from Austin TX. They create cinematic and psychedelic compositions blending intense droning guitars with melodic viola. The core of the band is two guitars, bass, drums, and viola, although they do play with violins, keyboards and vibes at times. They are currently on Golden Antenna Records, a label based in Hessen, Germany, who released the band’s latest LP A Drink for All My Friends in March 2013.
Honey and Salt
Honey and Salt play technically competent but completely unpretentious music. They seamlessly meld the Chicago sound of the 90’s, pioneered by those ubiquitous Kinsella brothers, and the British Canterbury prog scene, while sounding refreshingly like neither. Less hectic than a Friday night at the Fireside Bowl, and less dense than King Crimson’s sheet music, Honey and Salt stand on their laurels, play with intensity, and manage to escape both the redundancy and clichés linked with math rock.
“Formerly known as Kay Leotard, this local quartet has altered both its lineup and sound in the past year. With psychedelic haze slightly restrained, vocalist/guitarist Kristina Boswell’s newer songs find extra melodic and emotive heft reminiscent of Tara Key’s work with Antietam. Full-length Chimera drops later this year. “– Greg Beets (Austin Chronicle)
