Wake b/w Drift
Reviewed by Underbelly
Instrumental post-rock quartet from Wisconsin packs some serious emotional punch in these two tracks. Think Explosions in the Sky with a touch of shoegaze and some cool En-like ambience and you pretty much have CoS. You can't go wrong with either side.
A: Slow, ambient intro, reminds me of En. Builds into pounding drums with some nice guitar lines. Reminds me of the Album Leaf. Like AF though, this track borders on cheese in the beginning but gets a real nice groove going in the middle.
B: Long, epic jam with monstrous walls of sound. Super rad guitar work and huge, powerful drums. Nice synthy sound effects too. Play this!
