Don’t Mess With Texas…

Band You Should Know

Don’t Mess With Texas is actually a post-rock instrumental band from Croatia…yup, you heard me. I had the pleasure of hearing the band a few years and I remember being impressed. The band name always stuck with me and I finally got a hold of a copy of the band’s 2004 Self-Titled debut record recently and it’s just as good as I remember. The band certainly is akin to some of the post-rock giants out there now like Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky and Mono but Don’t Mess With Texas add some nice touches of their own. It’s a wonderful debut album and the band is reportedly currently writing for their follow-up. The band released their debut album on the rather impressive Slovenia label, Moonlee.
