6th album (more of an EP really), and true to name and form, the Texan instrumental post-rockers continue to paint swaths of epic, proggy sounds.
Text Christopher Ujine Ong
Opener ‘Last Known Surroundings’ is a spirited builder, and it’s the usual build-and-crash modus operandi for the others that follow, with ‘Trembling Hands’ breaking away at a brash 3 minutes. Not that such a formula disparages; as prog rockers know, the length doesn’t matter, as long as the going’s good.
