Arms Of Tripoli - Daughters

Since its humble beginnings, Arms Of Tripoli has pioneered the art of instrumental rock, utilizing a non-conventional format to creating innovative and timeless sounding indie music. Not easily pigeonholed, Arms of Tripoli has often been dubbed post-rock and math-rock, due to their progressive tendencies and dynamic and layered sound. Using some standard rock fare such as guitar, bass and drums along with the addition of less-typical rock instrumentation, such as Vibraphone, Rhodes and Omni-Chord, Arms Of Tripoli has been able to stand out amongst the sea of post-rock and carve out a niche all its own. At the heart of their sound are well written songs with very catchy melodies, at times melancholy and often cinematic while being free of over indulgence.

Based out of Los Angeles, CA and formed in July of 2011, Arms of Tripoli continues to be an ever-evolving and uniquely independent instrumental band. After parting ways with long-time friends Robert Bauwens and Vic Lazar in late 2014, the remaining core, consisting of Mike Bouvet, Jaime Galvez, and George Tseng welcomed the arrival of Allen Porter. Allen had previously worked with Mike on other side projects and came with immensely high recommendations as someone that would not only gel with the rest of the band, but strengthen and fortify its sound. Thus the new line-up was solidified and they all instantly developed camaraderie. The quartet immediately found natural chemistry and started working on new material that would eventually become "Daughters," the highly anticipated Arms Of Tripoli full-length follow up album to 2014’s “Dream in Tongues.”Upon completion of tracking “Daughters,” the band added long-time friend, collaborative partner and extremely talented multi-instrumentalist, KC Maloney (Adult Karate, Radar Cult), to the line-up, filling out the void in the live set and completing the sonic experience of the band.

Arms of Tripoli’s second full length album, Daughters, is truly a post-rock work of art. The dynamic layers of the songs slowly unspool, climatically ramping up to convulsions of euphoria inside the brain. The album is a beautiful reflection of the diverse and numerous influences which are apparent in each member’s contribution to the collection of songs. Shades of many subgenres of progressive, post and math rock sprinkle the album with undertones of compelling influence which all congeal into a solid, substantial overall release for the band’s sophomore LP; a very worthy follow-up to 2014’s Dream in Tongues.
