After hearing half of this band's set supporting Godspeed You Black Emperor I just had to get their album. They sound like a cross between Wheat circa Medeiros with an edge akin to Mogwai in their mellower, singing songs. Sometimes it's the simple things that give the most pleasure.
Even if the former releasings of the band are much better, this new album is a must-have, and is maybe more accessible. It's the meeting of Bonnie Prince Billy and Mogwai, with a focus on strange moment of your life (Morning) and with a kind of Cartesian belief.(Something elemental: blood or water...) The best way to introduce yourself into this unique canadian band.
