The Great Went – The Great Went
Self released – 2013
Rock, Prog, Post, Instrumental
Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, the three piece that goes by the name The Great Went was formed in 2009 and released their debut album We’ve Met Before two years later. After which a new drummer joined the band and the guys forged ahead to release their self-titled sophomore record a few months ago. Their instrumental progressive postrock excels in slow meanderings and leisurely build ups that only explode when necessary and can easily retain your focus. With fascinating heavy delay on the bass and a highly open signature on the drums the guitar gets all the room to vent frustrations and dwell on the good moments. In time; the album takes on the identity of a good friend that brings good beer and helps you blow of steam and remember the good times. That’s how it goes. That’s how it went.
