Finland's Kairon; IRSE! dropped their sophomore album here this past fall, and I'm incredibly happy this thing didn't end up slipping by me while we still have some time left in 2014.
The thick, blissful, and syrupy sounds of shoegaze are what you'll find all over this record. Obscured vocals hiding behind layer upon layer of blaring guitars, but the band also isn't afraid to embark upon a progressively building post-rock jam in the vain of Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra or Do Make Say Think. An unlikely fusion of genres that sounds really great in this instance.
