LOCAL LISTEN: Sea Hero – “Grave Talk”

It’s obvious that Louisville has a reputation for pumping out some of the first and most original post-rock bands, many of which ended up becoming influential among bands that replicated the style. Making recent waves is Sea Hero, a band that delves back to Rodan in its song structure, but introduces the aggressiveness into the instrumental genre that bands like Young Widows have exemplified on a local level. Think the quiet reserved moments in a Mono tune meeting the face-punching Explosions in the Sky elements. Here is where Sea Hero dwell.

The band recently recorded their debut LP Grave Talk with studio mastermind Kevin Ratterman at The Funeral Home. According to guitarist Buddy McHagan, the 7 track record was recorded live in a single eight hour session. That’s how you know the mark of a post-rock outfit hardcore above the rest.

You can catch the band open for Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) tonight at Zanzabar. They’ll have Grave Talk available for purchase on CD, and they’re currently developing a digital release. Either way you spin it, Sea Hero is a band well worth checking out. And you can do so below, with the album track “I Wish You’d Look”.
