Sometimes you stumble upon something that’s just too good to hold onto and not tell everyone you know about it. Gungor, a self-described liturgical post rock 4 piece, is one of those somethings. I happened to find these guys by browsing a friend’s church’s Facebook profile. They posted an acoustic version of the band’s Beautiful Things, the title song off of their new 13 song full length album. I’m not going to describe in detail what their style is like, nor say much about who they are and what they do. I’ll let the following videos speak for themselves. But allow me just to bolster, or explain, what was previously mentioned quickly. Gungor is a liturgical post rock band because their musical style has been self described as a combination of Sigur Ros, Muse and Sufjan, and they’re liturgical because, well, they write worship music. If you have a few minutes, take a listen to these videos. It’s well worth your time. And, if you like their music so much that you want to play it, well head on over to their website — www.gungormusic.com — and download the chord charts.
