Big Muscles were three guys from Long Beach that played melodic and epic instrumental rock. Not too mathy, not too jammy, not too rifftastic. More like a grab-bag of a bunch of ideas that come in waves of complexity and calmness. Very enjoyable.
This is their 2 song Bromance EP that clocks in under 8 minutes, but supplies years of greatness. Seriously, I’ve heard people playing this EP at KXLU for years now, EVEN THOUGH OUR COPY SKIPS.
The first track is under 2 minutes, so nobody plays it, even though it’s great. A real winner. The second track is over 6 minutes, so DJs love to play it, however, it always starts skipping somewhere in the second minute. The delightfully beautiful men of Big Muscles promised they would supply us with another copy, but have not.
Then they broke up.
