Ben Backus, Lucas Brode and Eric Castillo are Hannibal Montana, an instrumental post-rock trio from New York. They throw in progressive licks and quite a bit of math rock on their 28-20 EP. While most band in their niche tend to be heavy handed there's an air of laissez-faire to their material. The soft chill-out vibe A Lie I Used To Tell sit comfortable next to the rollercoaster ride of Tales From the Cryptic, which sounds like King Crimson in their Red phase.
They are a tight band who are adamant to play what they want. A&R guys will give up on them, but they will be embraced by avant-garde aficionados who are into Mogwai and Sonic Youth.
