One of the best releases of 2014 so far, listen to it / download it here: http://wanderband.bandcamp.com/album/mourning
Wander – Mourning
A wonderfully energetic post-rock album, with almost frenetic drumming and lush, expansive soundscapes. Think: current ASIWYFA, but with Mono-like dreamy buildups and more self-contained songs (less reliance on repeated motifs).
Relatively new band, as far as I can tell – really looking forward to their future efforts. Post-rock bands do tend to get stuck in a rut, entrapped by the cliches of the genre etc (slightly ironic considering post-rock’s initial goal), would love for this band to break away from that.
