Those Who Ride With Giants [Deluxe]
“As a big fan of Explosions in the Sky, my ears have fallen in love with the instrumental sonic majesticness that Those Who Ride With Giants have achieved on their self-titled debut EP. While the “band” is really just one man – Sydney, Australia’s illustrator/animator/instrumental art rocker MJ Callaghan – the multi-layered instrumentation and spacious atmospherics make these performances feel like a full band playing off each other in the same room at the same time. So far, my favorite track on the EP is “The Mountain Seed” but “The Warmth of the Old Tavern” is fighting hard to overtake that designation.”
– Will Hodge, NoiseTrade.com (Sept. 27th, 2014)
Beautiful work by MJ Callaghan, with an odd and atmospheric creativity that takes us to the ends of the ocean, a harmonious sound with great arrangements and a very well-developed precise technique.
