I Don't Think We Can Be Friends Anymore EP
Yes Maybe No
Most definitely not Laura's best work. 'Yes Maybe No' is an EP released in 2008, and features 6 songs. Three of these are filler songs (Ones titled Z.I.B) and don't add much to the EP, but the other songs are all above average post-rock songs.
Radio Swan is Down
I guess when you hear of any band hailing from Australia, you immediately get turned off. This band has such an interesting feel and a more approachable take on the art of post-rock, being similar to bands such as Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. 'Radio Swan is Down' features a collection of well composed and concisely produced songs that send a shiver down your spine when you listen to them. There are a few cons, though. These being some songs and some parts of songs are obsolete and unworthy of being on the same CD as songs such as 'Radio Swan is Down' and the first half of 'Another Near Miss'.
Mapping Your Dreams
Once you listen to this album more than a few times, you realise the intensity and significance it could possibly have on your music taste. This album is both accessible and easy to listen to, but so difficult to capture. Laura have mastered the idea of having a grabbing opening song, with 'Jericho'. This song is a two minute, increasingly intense piece that could only be rivaled by a somewhat similar song that is 'Moya' by GY!BE, and if you can rival GY!BE, you know you're doing something right in the post-rock world.
Yes Yes Vindictive
I admit, I felt very guilty for listening to such a band that made it so easily to popularity, but some of the songs are very catchy (Zero Zero, Get What You Want, Yes Yes) but some songs are also worse than shit (6/8, Pantomime). Overall good to listen to.
