Post-rock
Recorded in a farmhouse in the Australian country, this Perth group’s second album evokes a wide-open space and yet feels intimate and isolated. This is not your apocalyptic post-rock gloom, nor is it the epic soundtrack to some as-yet unmade action movie. This is something much more personable and playful, a musical friend for a sunny day. Brass and woodwind instruments join the usual rock instrumentation. Favorites: 1, 3, 4 + 5, 8, 12. Mostly instrumental, all FCC clean.

1. *(5:09)—Gentle, melancholy, autumnal. First half has a slowcore feel. Second half speeds up and reaches a gorgeous climax.
2. (4:45)— Slow, glitchy but mild electronic beat. Soft drones and chimes. Calm and cheery.
3. *(6:35)—Begins with guitar strumming and singing. Segues into slow, serene post-rock meandering. Choral vocals enter near the end.
4. *(3:19)—Slow lullaby-like beginning and ending, with a mid-tempo passage in the middle. Fades into track 5.
5. *(2:58)—Continuation of track 4. Drifting, entrancing beginning. Mid-tempo drums return in the second half.
6. (2:32)—High-pitched guitar picking. Mish-mash of swirling melodies. Various percussion types.
7. (4:14)—Slow, evening waltz. Takes on a sparer, more ghostly sound in the second half.
8. *(4:56)—Medium-slow, very light but driving percussion. Music for the most peaceful segments of a day’s journey.
9. (1:48)—Intertwining of guitar picking and chimes. Soft beat.
10. (2:32)—Mid-tempo, clicking percussion. Keyboard blips and drones.
11. (0:54)—Lo-fi beat, synth sounds.
12. *(4:47)—Slow, pensive, a bit darker. Jazzy rhythm, chimes. Speeds up in the second half.
