    Less Art’s new album Strangled Light is up for stream on Bandcamp. You can read more about the project over at Bandcamp’s The Daily as well:

    The term “supergroup” is bandied about these days with little regard for the “super” part of the term. But in the case of Less Art, the term applies: Ian Miller and Jon Howell of celebrated post-metal group Kowloon Walled City join Mike Minnick of Curl Up & Die and Riley and Eddie Breckenridge of Thrice to make a post-rock outfit combining elements of sludge and noise with more than a few jangly guitars. Using the project as an outlet for their various life stressors, on their debut, Less Art tackle in-your-face issues like suicide, animal extinction, and gun control in a way only savvy veterans can.

    Not sure if the author of the article knows what "post-rock" is, because this is definitely not that. Post-hardcore maybe, but not post-rock. Surprisingly these are very different things.

    won't be able to listen until later, but how does this compare to Thrice's work?

    I wouldn't classify this as post-rock, but it certainly borrows elements. This is very Pelican-esque. It's also very, very rad.

    Vocally it's completely different. Instrumentally, it's not wholly dissimilar, but it's different enough that you would never really confuse it for Thrice.
