4 stars Listening diary 14th August 2021: Tangled Thoughts of Leaving - Tiny Fragments (progressive post-rock/metal, 2008)

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving's maiden voyage is an interesting origin story - there are sounds on this release that would never really reappear on the band's later work, but also within is an unmistakable blueprint for the sound they would later develop. In my opinion, these guys are the absolutely pinnacle of modern instrumental post-rock, and are one of the most creative acts in the world in any genre. This EP is notable, because it's not instrumental, and for a lot of it, it's not rock - savage bursts of prog metal riffing punctuate the band's post-driven aura with frequency never heard later on. But despite this, the incredibly creative use of piano, avant-prog structures and modern classical composition with in a post- rock framework is definitely here early on. Not quite as refined as their later masterpieces, but an interesting addition to a great catalogue.

7.3 (5th listen)
