You find Thee Reps at the intersection where postrock meets krautrock, old school minimalism and chamber rock, and rest assured, that it is a very enjoyable spot. A recording that grows on you with repeated listenings.
Minimal Surface is the full-length debut from the long-running NYC band Thee Reps. As their name suggests, Thee Reps’ method of investigation involves finding good ideas and exploring them over long periods of repetition, sometimes with utter simplicity, other times with intricate, evolving interlocking lines. While relating to compositional motoric minimalism, Krautrock of the 70s, and post-rock of the 90s, Thee Reps offer something of a different flavor - less bombastic, more inscrutable, always flexible, and deeply focused.
