These Mountains Are Safe

this is the first full length from the texas trio Shapes Stars Make, and it sounds a hell of a lot like the bands that have obviously influenced them... explosions in the sky, the appleseed cast, mono, etc...

it's a good album but so many people are tired of the same old post-rock bullshit that many won't give it a chance, and that is unfortunate. the first song sounds like it could be from the new EITS record, but after that it starts to take on a uniqueness of it's own with the help of vocals and some more appleseed cast sounding parts. it takes some patience but worth it if you can sit down and give it a full listen

also the third song kind of sounds like radiohead.
