3 stars 3 stars is such a mean rating. SHORA is above average, but I wouldn’t call it a masterpiece also. 3.5 stars.

SHORA from Switzerland plays wonderful instrumental (OK, there are few vocals here and there) Post-Rock in vein of MAGYAR POSSE – not that much keen on guitars as MOGWAI or Post-Metal bands usually do, not that much melancholic as GYBE or MONO tend to create, not that much electronic and too modern as 65DAYSOFSTATIC or TORTOISE produce. Despite the fact that they have elements from almost any band I’ve mentioned, they are pretty solid-sounding band and I’d definitely visit a live show of them. Some moments are magically hypnotizing (better than any so-called Trance music!), some have almost Rothery-like tremolo guitar sound…songs flow one into another creating everlasting feeling of “been-there”. Atmospheric and relaxing, but never degrading into “background” music, SHORA’s “Malval” is an excellent addition to any Post-Rock collection. If you’re into light side of Post-Rock, you should definitely check this one out
