High Dependency Unit - Momento Mori EP (2000)

High Dependency Unit was a band that I saw open for Shellac many years ago in Madison, Wisconsin of all places.  It was the New Zealand band's first and so far only U.S. tour and their performance "almost" upstaged Shellacs set.  And that's saying something.  Momento Mori was the EP I bought from the band that night and is still my favorite release of theirs.  I guess they have that noise-rock thing going for them but kind of mixed with post-rock and shoegaze as well.  The song Amino has always reminded me of Sting singing with U2's the Edge playing guitar.  But please don't let that description scare you away, it really is a great record.
