My favorite tune: Expert with Altimeter

This Scottish trio sounds like a hushed down pre-megarockstar Coldplay with enigmatic intros, electronica sounds, few killer vocal harmonizations and chord progs that would make Chicago proud, and nice, cool, soothing melodies. And because nowadays both of those aforementioned bands are already way, way, way, past their prime, though a bit softer than their first LP Grappling Hooks, this new album should be a very good option to rejuvenate your post-rock music catalogue.

My Rating: 7/10
