Part of Madison, Wisconsin’s Layered Arts Collective, Cougar Law nimbly weaves improvisation, subtle electronic elements, and open-ended compositions into a heady, instrumental post-rock stew. Guitarists Dan Venne and Trent Johnson weave long, cyclical melodies with acoustics and beautifully burnished clean-toned electrics over sleepy grooves and skittish beats. The two guitarists sport an interplay that is top-notch, with understated musings—both harmonically and sonically—taking precedence in the drifting textures. If this is the future of rock, count me in.
