3 stars "Bounty Hunter 1853" is the debut full-length studio album by US, Pittsburgh based post rock act Broughton´s Rules. The album was released through Relapse Records in November 2010. Broughton´s Rules features ex-members of Don Caballero and Blunderbuss.

The music on the album is predominantly guitar driven instrumental post rock (Mogwai are no strangers to Broughton´s Rules). There are sporadic vocals on some tracks ("Broadside" is an example of that), but they are sparse. It´s audible that Broughton´s Rules are skilled musicians and they deliver their music with a nice organic touch which is further enhanced by the warm and organic sounding production. While the tracks feature recognisable parts which are repeated more than once during their playing time, the material are generally more intriguingly structured than the tried and true vers/chorus formula.

upon conclusion "Bounty Hunter 1853" is not exactly a revelation of the post rock style, but it´s overall a very enjoyable release of good quality in both songwriting, sound production, and musicianship. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

UMUR | 3/5 |
