Grails - The Burden of Hope

Grails - The Burden of Hope

Ben and John discuss the sixth and final album of the show's Instrumental Summer:  Grails' 2003 debut, The Burden of Hope.  Released on Neurot Records, The Burden of Hope showcases the Portland band's layered and experimental approach that would likely please fans of, but is significantly different from, post rock and post metal.  

The Greatest Thing You've Never Heard is a like a book club for your next favorite record.  Each episode is an in-depth examination of a single album that's worthy of greater recognition.  Our co-hosts, Ben and John, spend a full episode discussing an album and then often use a follow-up episode to interview the band that recorded it.
