3 stars Sounds Like The End Of The World are an instrumental Polish post rock band formed in 2012, and this is their second album, released in March this year. Mind you, their website doesn't contain any updates since 2015 so the album isn't listed there, there are no details on who played on it on the Bandcamp page, and the press release only provides the names and details for four musicians, none of whom play keyboards, but there are obviously keyboards present. According to Bandcamp this was recorded live in the studio, so now you all know everything I do about this.

There is a feeling of togetherness, so I'm no surprised that it was recorded live, as they are all feeding off each other. There is plenty of angst and rawness as they strive on dischord and disharmony, but there are also moments where they are more reflective in nature with some definite Pink Floyd elements. The highlight of the album is undoubtedly 'Obsession', where guest violinist Jan Gałach can really let rip. This is the only song on which he makes an appearance, and if I had any say in proceedings then I would make him a full- time member of the band as his roughness and stridency takes the music to another level. While not totally essential, this is still an album that is well worth hearing and is interesting.
