3 stars It looks like Tomān is very concerned for the bear's diet, the salmon's condition and the Canadian wildlife in general. Might I suggest our favourite Flemish group to dare moving out to the Great White North so they can sate their Canadian nature syndrome? Indeed I don't really care whether the salmon is smoked and it wouldn't make a difference to the grizzly bear of their previous album, he'd eat it without noticing the difference..Anyway, Toman are giving us a course on smokeable salmons & trouts on their cardboard sleeve album. Whether their pre-occupations and artwork envies are in line with their music is a pertinent question, though.

That's the beauty of post rock, you can have it say the dumbest and most seemingly useless thing into, it takes on a different dimension, but the fish or bear theme don't seem to be a primordial inspiration through their song titles but the summer theme (fishing season) certainly is. 8 tracks, ranging from xxx to yyy, filled with relatively quiet post rock, again in the GYBE! mode, at times sung, Tomān's post rock doesn't differ much from the better known groups. You won't find much to differentiate Tomān from the dozens of band offering such music, though.

BTW: Toman boys I don't smoke salmon, only good grass. easier to roll.
