Apricot Rail – Basket press (from the album Quarrels, Hidden Shoal)

Post-rock is a dirty word(s) in some quarters these days but something as unself-conscious and beautifully light as this tune could be capable of redeeming the genre. A guitar-flute duet (in a certain light), it has a lovely, fluttering, chiming quality that’s quite alien to most guitar instrumentals. From the Perth band’s second album on Hidden Shoal.
