sleepmakeswaves have never been a band to operate outside of the standard post-rock archetype, but here they go just a smidge further than usual, with some instrumental prog arrangements (Polyphia come to mind, as well as more typical prog affair) as well as post-hardcore and electronica (somewhat reminiscent of genre stalwarts 65daysofstatic). These little adjustments to the formula do just enough to refresh, while little repeated musical motifs appear here and there to add a unified feel to the full album. All in all, consistency reigns supreme in the sleepmakeswaves camp, though, despite constant switch-ups, this does feel a bit too much like their previous.
