The substantial, enduring popularity of Godspeed You! Black Emperor proves that music fans have greater attention spans than pundits usually give credit them for. GY!BE’s raison d’être is to create orchestral epics in loose song form. Lacing their sweeping drone-rock suites with anti-imperialist spoken-word messages and pointed, elliptical film dialogue, GY!BE shift from tense tranquility to grave turbulence with a masterly sense of drama. From 1997’s F#A# (Infinity) to 2015’s Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress (perhaps their hardest rocking release), they’ve rarely wavered from their MO of ratcheting up tension to nearly unbearable levels and then decrescendoing into contemplative meandering. Their loyal, large, high-IQ fan base ain’t complaining, and the band’s been rewarded with a two-night stand at Neumos. DAVE SEGAL
