ROCK: Math Rock, ROCK: Post-Rock/Experimental
Pleistocene''s big sound and long songs can best be described as glacial. Incorporating a wide range of instrumentation and less-than-traditional song structures, the band brings a certain unpredictability to more traditional rock and roll. Begun in 2003 as a solo project by guitarist/vocalist Eric Gangloff, the project quickly expanded into a rock experiment combining avant-garde sampling and noise devices with traditional orchestral and marching band instruments. The name Pleistocene, referring to the epoch when glaciers covered the land, is appropriate for a band that moves slowly and deliberately.
At times consisting of 11 people, Pleistocene continues to expolre how electronic and acoustic instruments can work together in ambitious compositions. Currently, the band is nine: Angela Forster on violin, Bonnie Weimer on banjo and vocals, John Golter on bass, Jon Marbach on drums, Johnny Sherry on trumpet, Jonathan Hart on trombone, Jesse Thompson on trombone and keyboards, Matt truck on electronics, samples, and noise, and Eric Gangloff on vocals, guitar, and keyboards.
Pleistocene has released its first LP CD entitled "¡Ojalá!" in the spring of 2008. The album features 5 songs, both political and personal, raucous and pretty: Igneous, Let Yourself Be Conquered By Xela, A Cartographer''s Job Is Never Done, Fallujah, and Once We Launch This Thing.
