LON­DON EX­PER­I­MEN­TAL ROCK MOB UN­LEASH DIVINE DIG­I­TAL-ONLY EP

■ DOWN I Go may be the best band you’ve never heard of. Formed in 2005, they made records about di­nosaurs (This Is Dinocore), nat­u­ral dis­as­ters (This Is Disas­ter­core) and ro­bots (you’ve guessed it…), be­fore scat­ter­ing across mul­ti­ple con­ti­nents, seem­ingly in­ac­tive.three years later came Kick­starter-funded al­bumyou’re Lucky God,that I Can­not Reach You, recorded in Ice­land and based around the coun­try’s folk­lore. Need­less to say, they’re never bor­ing. Nor are these four tracks, a sort-of se­quel to 2011 EP Gods, which take their ti­tles and in­spi­ra­tion from fig­ures in Greek mythol­ogy. Of course, this means naff all if the tunes aren’t up to snuff, so it’s a good thing they’re all tor­rents of melody and mal­ice, gov­erned by math­e­mat­i­cal time changes and gui­tars you could de­fend a vil­lage with. DOWN­LOAD: Palae­mon. FOR FANS OF: Sikth, Press to MECO.
