My Education biography
My Education is a Post-rock band formed in 1999 in Austin by Brian Purington, Eric Gibbons and Sean Seagler. They were first thinking in having vocals in their music, but the idea was scratched. The addition of Stars of the Lid keyboardist Kirk Laktas, Cinder violinist James Alexander and guitarist Chris Hackstie established the line-up of the band. Their self-released debut, 5 Popes, was released in 2001, but it sold out in 2001. It wasn't until 2004 that the record label Thirty Ghosts Records re-released it and won more fans thanks to it. In 2005 they released their second album, Italian, in which they've added some Space Rock influences in their sound. In 2006 the line-up had some slight changes. One of the fouding members,Eric Gibbons, leaves the band to keep up with his art career. St 37 bassist Scott Telles, Benko vibraphonist Sarah Noris and drummer Chris Stelly are added to My Education's rooster. They also released an EP called Moody Dipper which has three new songs and remixes of Kinski, Red Sparowes, Dälek and Teith. After hitting the road in the summer of 2006 they recorded a 12 inch with Dälek called Spiegel im Spiegel which is an interpretation from both artists of a piece by minimalist composer Arvo Part. My Education is currently recording their follow-up to Italian and scoring a film called Sunrise: A Song for Two Humans which is a 1927 classic silent film from F.W. Murnau.

Review by BrufordFreak

4 stars Such a diversified collection of songs! It's mind-boggling to try to keep remembering that this is one group, one album--and supposedly a soundtrack! (To F.W. MURNAU [yes, of Nosferatu fame]'s 1927 silent film, "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans.")

1. "Sunset" --chamber symphonietta in the style of KRONOS QUARTET and PHILLIP GLASS meet CLINT MANSELL. Absolutely beautiful, haunting, and certainly worthy of video accompaniment. 10/10

2. "City Woman" --starts as a slow song in the more typical Math/Post Rock format and style--vibes, drum kit, electric guitar, saw-like electric violin and keyboard drones--all while covering their own version of PINK FLOYD's intro section to "Time." Then, at the 3:05 mark, we suddenly switch channels for a 25 second "Fiddler on the Roof" interlude before the song kicks back in for a kind of Celtic-Middle Eastern version of Floyd's "One of These Days"--adding, of course, the Post Rock climax, crescendo, and decay. 8/10

3. "Lust" is another absolutely stunning song sounding like heroin-influenced version of JEAN-LUC PONTY's "New Country" with Jean-Luc playing with ALGERNON and COLLAPSE UNDER THE EMPIRE. This song, more than all the others, makes me want to watch the movie--just to see how the music and film match up and make me feel. A must hear! 10/10

4. "Oars" begins rather eerily with some awesome treated cymbols and percussive sounds before gelling and building as a powerful and rather concise (in the Post Rock world) rendering of more familiar post-rock music. Straightforward and loud yet melodic. More like a very polished, mature MOGWAI, RED SPAROWES or CASPIAN song. Great! 9/10

5. "Peasant Dance" has the feel of a rockified Rumanian/Gypsy dance. Not my favorite song on the album, but, then again, I don't know what it is from the film that they're trying to capture with this song. A very different piece for this album--upbeat but in that vodka-doused Russian/Eastern European way. Interesting instrumentation combinations. 6/10

6. "A Man Alone" is an amazingly full-spectrum ambient soundscape that BRIAN ENO would be very proud of. One of the best I've ever heard. Great addition to my "Songs for the Shadow" meditation playlist. 10/10

7. "Sunrise," the album's closer (a 40-minute soundtrack for a 95-minute film?), offers a recapitulation of many of the themes and sounds from the previous songs within the minimalist strings/chamber music framework of the opener, "Sunset." An absolutely gorgeous and truly cinematic closer--I can almost see the film's finale and the rolling of the credits! 10/10

While not a masterpiece, it is definitely one of the best albums of 2010--the one I listen to more than any other. Masterful and so beautiful. An excellent additioni to any prog lovers collection.
