Festooned with stickers announcing, "featuring members of the Arcade Fire," the debut from Canadian post-rock instrumentalists the Bell Orchestre owes as much allegiance to Tortoise, Jim O'Rourke, and Brian Eno as it does the lost childhood anthems that populate Funeral. That said, there's no harm in stealing a little buzz from a group that has recently found itself sharing the stage with, as well as being covered by, legends like U2 and David Bowie. Recording a Tape the Colour of the Light borrows enough Philip Glass repetition and John Cage minimalism to warrant its Orchestre title, but it's first and foremost a rock record.
