29. sleepmakeswaves - ...and so we destroyed everything
Almost as if they were making a subtle nod to post-rock phenoms TWDY, these Aussies decided to do them one better and name the album "...and so we destroyed everything
" (emphasis added by yours truly). Indeed. This album truly does just that. I have to admit that this is my first true foray into this band's work, but judging by the comments made by several folks on this forum whose opinions I trust, I knew I'd like them a great deal. I especially love how triumphant this music often is. It's like a bad mood's worst fucking enemy. Note that I ranked this album just a bit higher than this year's release from EITS, and that is neither a coincidence, nor an oversight, nor a decision that I took lightly. This album straight up deserves it. It's simply fucking fantastic.
