Label: Cranky/Constellation
Key Track: "She Dreamt She Was a Bulldozer, She Dreamt She Was Alone in an Empty Field"

Rock's long had orchestral aspirations, but nobody's done it like GY!BE before: dense, meanderingly-focused compositions that build inexorably towards crushing denouements (get that French-English dictionary poppin'). OK, first Jesus, now you're telling us the emperor's black, too? What's next, the president?

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
LYSFLATH is entirely instrumental, consisting of four tracks clocking in at more than 18 minutes each.
