M.G.R. 'Wavering On The Cresting Heft'
Wavering on the Cresting Heft is the second solo recording from Isis guitarist Michael Gallagher under the moniker MGR. MGR is an acronym for Mustard Gas and Roses, which is taken from Vonnegut's classic novel Slaughterhouse-Five. This new full-length follows Gallagher's debut MGR offering, 2006's Nova Lux. If one were to loosely describe the music of MGR, an appropriate description would fall under the post-rock classification. And while there are similarities, MGR dabbles in a bit more abstract style than those artists. The album mixes the ambiance of This Will Destroy You, the guitar-driven sounds of Isis, and the drone of Sunn O))).
