4 stars Wow, for a debut EP from a post-rock band (there seem to be so many these days) this is EXTREMELY promising. I think this band has made epic post-rock into a science. They've mastered the art of making raw emotion out of minimalist instrumental music, and they've only released three songs. While they are intensely good at what they do, one cannot really say that they are entirely original. To imagine their sound, simply combine what you know about the intense build-ups of Mono, the jungle-thick layering of Explosions in the Sky, and add the instrumental orchestration of Sigur Ros. The three epic tracks on this EP are each roughly of the same format. They build from light instrumental melodies to thunderous musical orgasms, then retreat and repeat the cycle with different themes. They seem to have found a formula, but boy oh boy is it an effective formula. If the purpose of epic post-rock is to create emotion from instrumental music, then Yndi Halda create simultaneous passion, joy, lament, dejection and elation in one fell swoop. All three tracks are good, but the final one, 'Illuminate My Heart, My Darling' is a seventeen and a half-minute masterpiece. This is definitely a Four-Star EP, and I look forward to hearing much more from this impressive band.
