Everyday-Glory ,

An instant classic

As much as I love this band, I don't think it's some dark secret that GIAA is one of the more predictable "big-name" post-rock bands out there. That said, Origins is everything I hoped it would be: different production leading to a sound that deviates from the typical GIAA formula, with songwriting that lets you know it's definitely still them. Highlights include the uplifting album opener "The Last March," melodically charged single "Spiral Code," and "Red Moon Lagoon," the catchiness of which is rivalled only by "Fire Flies and Empty Skies." The way the vocal effects come through is of particular note; they seem to take on more of a dominant role on this album, rather than being used as atmospheric effects like they have in the past. This is really the best thing that could have happened to me as summer is ending; if you're a fan of post-rock or punchy, accessibly instrumental music, you might want to have yourself a listen.
