"At the Soundless Dawn," Red Sparowes

Instrumental, sublime and slightly bombastic- these are terms normally used to describe the new school of indie post rock as heard in the music of Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor. Hailing from Los Angeles and containing members from Isis and Neurosis, Red Sparowes do fit into this category but are a bit more complex in terms of their sound and influences. Some liken the lushness of At the Soundless Dawn to Godspeed and Mogwai, while others use Isis and Neurosis as a basis of comparison. While these referential elements are at play, other comparisons to Explosions in the Sky and A Silver Mount Zion are equally noticeable. Regardless of these semantics, this album is an epic and monumental wall of sound that incorporates beautiful tempo shifts and movements into a fluid tapestry. --Alex Slawson and Herman Snell
