My Education = This Will Destroy You + Slowdive
This is as post-rock as you can get—intricate guitar melodies, heart-racing riffs, stereotypical drumbeats. Stereotypes aren’t bad, though, and My Education execute what they want so well through their music. Chills ran up my spine as I listened to this in my car as the sun rose. It’s perfect for those solitary moments. This is a masterfully crafted album with a warm, overwhelming blanket of sounds with enjoyable melodies and soft, delicate interludes. –Arnold Hsu
