Three years have passed since the experimental-indie debut "Blakc Mould", and Yobrepus has become a real band with real ambitions. Ambitions that this time around, led them to record with Emil Nikolaisen at Malabar studios, and hire the experienced Nick Terry to mix on vintage analogue gear.
Continuing the fungal theme from the previous release title, "Mycelium Days" sees Yobrepus venture into a more progressive territory than before. The album starts with a 22-minute long medley that pays homage to legendary songs like Echoes and Lark‘s Tongues in Aspic. Get ready for long instrumental parts with mellotrons! However, it would be wrong to describe the music as retro. On the contrary, this is text-book post-progressive, and much more coherent than their previous effort. Sure, there’s still that vibe of indie rock, and the odd touch of 90s trip-hop, but where we would previously draw comparisons to the Beatles, Radiohead or Sparklehorse – we now hear the influence of acts like King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree.
