Silo - Alloy (2001)

Mesmerizing Danish post-rock colored by shimmering electronic elements -- I think that combination is where they get the "alloy." As hypnotic and groove-based as this album is, it's written almost entirely in odd time signatures, which makes it all feel uneasy, like it's a beautiful, intricate piece of architecture built on quicksand. A front-to-back excellent album that would still sound fresh if it came out tomorrow.

Track listing:
1. Bulk
2. Prime Movers
3. K2
4. Motor
5. Contrast
6. Evolved as into Vertical
7. Foliage
