S IS FOR SEEFEEL

Seefeel are a post-rock group (whatever you take to mean by that term). They get on these pages as they were quite influential in their quiet way and becuase they were on the sainted Warp Records for a short while.

Seefeel formed during 1992 in London, England; with Mark Clifford on guitar, Mark Van Hoen on bass, Justin Fletcher on drums and Sarah Peacock on vocals and guitar. During 1992, Mark Van Hoen was replaced by Daren Seymour on bass. They released their first EPs and first album on the British independent label Too Pure in 1993. Seefeel’s music was stylistically situated at the intersection of dream pop/shoegaze and ambient techno/IDM. The band signed with electronic label Warp Records in 1994, after which point Seefeel’s music became much darker and more abstract. (CH-VOX), published in 1996 on Rephlex, was Seefeel’s most recent and likely final release. Members of Seefeel have continued to release new material under different aliases and projects. As of 2008, Seefeel have partially reformed (with DJ Scotch Egg filling in for Daren Seymour on bass and former Boredoms drummer E-Da filling in for Justin Fletcher) and have been playing select live shows. Seefeel performed their last live concert with the original lineup in October 1997 alongside Boards of Canada. Wiki

I have their 1995 album “Succour” on Warp and a couple of singles but I’m afraid my attention tends to wander when I listen to them. But if you like Tortoise or the over-rated Mogwai, try this:

Seefeel – Starethrough  

Seefeel – Spangle  

Seefeel – Meol
