This record totally feeds my monster that is my post-rock past. The guitar playing is great, it's kinda wussy sounding at points and really scary at others, pretty neat stuff. Everyone I play it for really likes it, and that kinda says more about the people I associate with than it does the record, but if you like the other stuff I put up here, chances are you'll like this.
Totally surprising that these guys are a newish band that doesn't really have that much hype yet. This seems like it could ride the Deerhunter train straight to coolsville.
That said, there's a bit of that "noise rock" shit going on here which I have pretty much no tolerance for. Go ahead, say what you will but that shit is fucking boring. Do you just go to the airport and listen to planes taking off? I know that likely sounds real dumb, and that there are groaners out there saying that I am an unenlightened individual. To those people I say this...Stop trying to pretend that you are an artist when you are merely a hipster.
Oh, the rest of the record is good. I actually don't even really mind the noise stuff. Just had to get some off that shit off the chest.
