They Built The Ships That Sank
They know that post-rock loves a good shipwreck...
This is a creaky vessel, at best. The best bits of 'The Hope Part' shiver with portent, while 'Rockets Into Buildings' does languorous things to guitars. But the sample of a shouting preacher at the end of 'Song Of The End' is one rock on which the Quartet founder; the singer's anguished rasp is another. This is no sunken treasure.
