Ancestor Croll - Self Titled

Ancestor Croll

Ancestor Croll

The self-titled debut album, Ancestor Croll, was released in May, 2010. It showcases the bands many influences. Indeed, the eclectic mixture of Post-punk, ambient acoustic, and Garage rock creates an exciting, yet sensitive, mood that characterizes the album as a whole.

"Great Salt Lake" features darkly agitated vocals, a powerful bass riff, and layered guitar. The sense of ambiance is not unlike the original Manchester bands of the early 80's with a touch of modern alternative.

"The Narcissist Song" performed in a "tongue in cheek" 70's punk style, reminds us of band's such as The Clash.

"Break Your Heart With One Finger" is an out-and-out rocker that fuses The Strokes with Nirvana to produce the albums loudest and most frenzied guitar attack.

"Kakadu", "You Make Me Feel", "To the Lighthouse", and "Poor Instruments" reveal the more melodic and intimate side of the band. The classical guitar's finesse and exquisite chord changes are probably the highlights of the album.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
