That was really awesome! I have high hopes for the new album now.
First half was pretty interesting, but it devolved into pretty generic GIAA fare. It's fine, but the band really needs to change up their sound somewhere.
Digging: Two People - Second Body
Caspian could pull this sort of shit way better tbh
is Caspian gonna release another album anytime soon?
here's hoping, their last album was fantastic
Yes Caspian is one of the most underrated post rock bands and one of my fav bands in general now.
how are they underrated though? they're pretty big in the scene
track is nothing new but decent
i enjoyed this a lot more than you guys seemed to, sounded a lot more emotional and inspired than anything from the last couple of the albums despite the poor video
Digging: Noumena - Anima
They have tons of listeners on Spotify and are big in the scene but around here they just don’t seem to be rated or talked about a whole lot.
post-rock in general isn't talked about much these days
And that really is a shame too
Agreed it deserves more attention. Enjoyed this song by the way, very emotive.
"post-rock in general isn't talked about much these days"
probably because of the years of basically every post-rock band sounding the same. that said, when I'm in the right mood, some good post-rock hits the spot
edit: that includes GIAA, they've written some great tracks in their day
not bad at all
Great song, thanks for posting. It sounds a lot different than the GIAA I've heard, the s/t and All is Violent, but there are several albums in between. I like the atmosphere on this a lot.
"probably because of the years of basically every post-rock band sounding the same."
i've always found this point really trite. not to mention untrue. pretty much every good post-rock band sounds really distinct and unique. hear a GIAA song for 10 seconds and you know it's them. same for jakob, sleepmakeswaves, mono, gy!be, caspian, i could go on for ages.
"hear a GIAA song for 10 seconds and you know it's them."
Partly because they haven't evolved in any meaningful way in about 10 years.
I'm not super familiar with sleepmakeswaves or jakob, I'll go give them a shot. But there are/were also a lot of bands aping the Explosion in the Sky sound that didn't do much to differentiate.
i think that's pretty disingenuous - there's obvious songwriting shifts from album to album. hear a track from any given album and you know which one it's from.
i don't know why this band are treated so harshly. yes, their music is rather simplistically constructed and direct but as far as i'm concerned it hits a specific itch of easy to digest yet not one dimensional music with a great atmosphere that few other post-rock bands can do.
if you want other great post-rock, check out the meniscus album from last year. absolutely fantastic stuff.
Band created arguably one of the best songs ever made and a lot of mediocre shit.
A few lazy comments in here suggesting this sound just like typical GIAA. Delve into the track a little deeper and it becomes clear it's a lot more atmospheric and emotive than previous releases (although Helios/Erebus was great) with much more complimentary production. Stoked for the new album after hearing this.
All Is Violent, Far From Refuge, and the s/t are all you really need.
I'd throw in Age of the Fifth Sun, at least for a couple tracks. Shining Through rules.
The build-up is classic GIAA. I dug the heavy guitars after the build-up quite a bit. The song fizzled out a little fast after the work-up to the heavy guitar bit though. I wish the track kept exploding there instead of dropping back down to pick back up ever so slightly for the conclusion.
the end of the beginning is awesome, and the remastered version of a moment of stillness is great too. i like this band too much.
Really dig this, one of my favorite bands in the scene. Looking forward to this
Digging: Lush - Gala
This was better than expected.
And the video reminds me of "The Others" (such a great movie).
Oh man, this is pretty fantastic.
its amazing track wyd
this video tho. WTF?
suicide by star is one of the best post rock songs ever written
Digging: Cloudkicker - Solitude
I would have to agree!
Yea dude Suicide By Star is chilling
The beginning was pretty sweet but it didn't really build to anything. Disappointing.
are you kidding? the climax was wonderful
Yeah I loved the ending climax. The way that second guitar kicks in on the left channel midway through. Real feeling in it, too.
album is streaming
album is fantastic, their best since all is violent, all is bright
This is gooooood.
wow, thanks for posting! really excited to check this one out. I liked the single they released for this
