Cool Instrumental Music on Thursday Night

May 31st, 2011

Sometimes you just don’t need words. And This Will Destroy You, the instrumental-rock outfit out of San Marco, Texas, proves that time and again with atmospheric (and occasionally effects-laden) quality music. The four-piece (drummer Alex Bhore, bassist Donvoan Jones, and guitarists Jeremy Galindo and Chris King) came onto the scene in 2006 with the well-received Young Mountain EP, which had originally been recorded as a demo. But if you’ve got a good thing, go with it. So they did. Two more EPs and a self-titled debut LP followed before This Will Destroy You (above, performing “Little Smoke” at the IFC Crossroads House at this year’s SXSW) released a second full-length, Tunnel Blanket, earlier this month. And now you can see the band along with the Nighty Nite and John LaMonica at The Bowery Ballroom on Thursday night.
