The Delta Mirror = Explosions in the Sky + El Ten Eleven

Better Unsung is an easy listen, with an interesting mixture of instruments both electronic and natural, vocals that are either clear or are so distorted they are merely mumbles, and a careful use of different musical styles. All these things combine to create swirling, feel-good soundscapes, and could very well be the soundtrack you need to crawl around in your own headspace for a while. Sometimes all the instruments, vocals, reverbs and other elements clash and become a little chaotic—which may lose you—but as an added bonus, there is an über-chill cover of Q Lazzarus’ “Goodbye Horses,” which, I must say, is the perfect jam for tucking your penis between your legs and slowly dancing with yourself. –Carl Acheson
