4 stars Asides their magical 2008 album, This Will Destroy You have also released a split with, at least to me, a very unknown band, Lymbyc Systym, also texan, also post-rock, also beautiful.

This starts with the best track on the EP, "Brutalism & The Worship Of The Machine" is a clear take on a much more ambient sound, not as ambient as "Villa Del Refugio" on their self-titled LP, but a much heavier and much more thought out than the aforementioned. And it runs from an epic start to beautiful melodies and perfect windy atmospheres, a really wondrous track. Next comes the second TWDY track, "Freedom Blade", a really soft and sympathetic track, with gorgeous xylophone (or something similar) and tender melodies.

Then, the Lymbyc Systym side, not as good as TWDY's one, but also very fine. Lymbyc Systym have a more dynamic and song-oriented song-writing, adding electronic percussion to its tracks (which TWDY don't in this EP), and very appealing melodies, this made me immediately like Lymbyc Systym, although I found then much more pleasure in the TWDY's tracks.

This is really excelent, This Will Destroy You still cannot fail for me, and anyone who likes post-rock, and especially TWDY or Lymbyc Systym, should definitely listen to this one (it is very short, clocking at 26 minutes, so it isn't a bore at all).
