My hope is that you are at work or have some time at home to spend the full 40 minutes with this live recording. It captures post-rock instrumental outfit The Early in collaboration with singer/songwriter Ben Seretan, and finds them working at an impressively high level of acuity. They take a more subtle approach than most instrumental groups of their kind. Instead of building to crescendo after crescendo, the quartet slowly raises the tide, wave upon gentle wave. Recorded in June of this year, it is listed on SoundCloud as a “Sit Down Jam,” which may explain the lack of vocals and the sometimes unfocused quality of pieces of it. But I have to admit that losing the trills of Seretan’s voice turns out to be a benefit to the band’s efforts to bring CinemaScope expanses out of their respective instruments.
