Dhow ; s/t ; Inam Records|
Solid shoegaze/post-rock album. Starts optimistic, takes you through a storm, and emerges with the sun. According to wikipedia, a dhow is a generic sailboat with triangular sails - very apt for the music. No vocals here. Kind of a lonely album, but an empowering loneliness.

1.(5:04) abul mogard meets blut aus nord. major shoegaze here too
2.(6:14) shoegaze soundtrack to a cool new wave film; adventure
3.(7:07) strong, warm, and fuzzy. deeply comforting with strong bass plucks.
4.(7:05) a little more sinister than the other tracks. clangs and whatnot fill out the sound
5.(2:53) noisy track with ambient burzum vibes - vamping, distortion
6.(3:20) inspirational culmination to the album. relaxing guitar ebb and flow
