Caspian - Waking Season

Who said post-rock couldn't be top of charts? Guess someone who didn't come across Caspian's master-piece Waking Season.

The absence of lyrics leaves me too with no words to describe this album. Everything about it is perfect. Intense, introspective, violent. Just how life should be.

I've seen darkness and Waking Season showed me the light. Thanks Caspian, your work here is done. 10/10.

Leave you with one of the most amazing things I've ever listened, Gone In Bloom And Bough:

Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold

Parquet Courts were totally unknown to me until Pitchfork suggested a track from their debut album Light Up Gold. From that day I've been involved in their world, a world that bounces from Joy Division's deep rock melodies and some sort of Ramones quick punk-rock.

I haven't figured out quite yet if I just needed to listen to something like this or if they're really good. Truth is I can't have enough of it.

It feels like No Age's close cousin or something like that.

Well, I leave you with their single Borrowed Time. It's all there.
