Post-rock is kind of hard to get new people into. Not many people are willing to put in ten minutes listening to a single track, and the lack of vocals make it hard for them to connect. But when a band does it well enough, they can simplify all the best elements to make anybody fall in love with it.
Caspian is an post-rock band from Beverly, MA that have mastered the genre, playing it in all lengths and variations. We're excited to announce that they have a new full-length LP titled Dust & Disquiet coming out September 25 on Triple Crown Records, and we're also stoked to show you that first song off the record "Sad Heart of Mine." The track features a well-paced build up that explodes at the end, where it becomes the life-affirming soundtrack you need in your life. It essentially comes in the length of a pop-song, which compacts each element of the perfect post-rock song while it retains the expansiveness necessary to the genre.
Listen to the song below, and lookout for the record when the album when it comes out on Triple Crown on 9/26. For other parts of the world it will be released on Hobbledehoy records in Australia, and Big Scary Monsters in Europe.
