Dianogah's Battle Champions is Jay Ryan and Jason Harvey, tandem bassists who decided to try on the guitar for this recording. This 2000 release is brave and daring, with shifting melodies and even shiftier time signatures. It was produced by master indie technician Steve Albini. This is Chicago post-rock at its finest. The contrapuntal melodies that Jay Ryan and Jason Harvey lay down are sonorous and fresh. In a lot of ways, the instrumental interplay is a lot like that of Tortoise, but it's hard to make post-rock allusions and not refer back to them, especially when the ensemble you're speaking of is in from Chicago. Dianogah's Battle Champions is a fantastic recording, and one that truly breathes with a reviving freshness. This disc is out on the Southern records label and should be available most everywhere. Fine disc.
