Which the guitarist of post-metal pioneers Isis would take up a side task consisting mainly of ambient guitar explorations was, in all probability, a surprise to no-one. That task, MGR — which means Mustard Gas & Roses — is normally led by Michael Gallagher, and got its begin around 2005. The undertaking was produced “public” using the 2006 full-length Nova Lux, that was released with the Neurosis-led label Neurot. An EP, Impromptu, implemented later that calendar year. In 2007, Gallagher released MGR’s follow-up record, Wavering for the Cresting Heft, which presented guest looks from a string quartet, Greg Melts away of Crimson Sparowes, and Dälek’s Oktopus.
