Recommendations from the Bandcamps: Deathmole
Death by Talpidae...
Deathmole is the work of one man, Jeph Jacques, who writes and illustrates the comic Questionable Content.
The music is quite good instrumental metal.
Deathmøle is a virtual post-metal band, whose works are freely available over the Internet, created by Jeph Jacques in 2005. The band is currently composed of three characters from his comic, Questionable Content. The name for the band appears in Strip 554 for the first time. Since its inception, Jeph has periodically released individual Deathmøle songs through his LiveJournal or his Tumblr where they remain available; newer albums are also available on BandCamp .
In chronological order, the Deathmøle albums are Moletopopolis, Long Songs, ???, Trial Period (EP), Amps, Absent Gods & Creatures Foul and finally Fear of Black Horses (in progress). Each album typically has seven or eight tracks with Trial Period's three and Moletopopolis' fifteen being the extremes. The music is Jeph's original work, with the exception of a cover of Low's "Two-step" on Long Songs.
