Today's Brew | iLiKETRAiNS

A band from Leeds, UK with either the most annoying name, because the way it chooses to use all caps except for the three letter I's, which are lowercase- and then squish it in one word. Or they are just plain pretentious with this whole gimmick with the names and their look. But if you were to look pass all that, their music has much more of a substance than what they play themselves as being.
Their sound is ethereal and a bit dark and gloomy (must be the English air?)- Almost in the same vein as Sigur Ros and Explosions in the Sky with a little tinge of Godspeed You Black Emperor!.

YouTube: iLiKETRAiNS - 'Spencer Perceval'
a spectacular nine and half minute release, reciting the story of the only successful assassination of a British Prime Minister, 'Spencer Perceval', in 1812. The song is written from the perspective of murderer John Bellingham whilst the accompanying track, 'I am Murdered', is sung from that of Spencer himself. (excerpt taken from beggars)
