Although the album is very sensible, and has very easy paced, quiet and almost static melodies, from this seven tracks emanates such a striking sense of absolute sincerity, wisdom and calmness, that you instantly feel the need to listen to this beautiful record again, as soon as it is over. With a splendid serenity that touches your soul, Miscellany has everything a good post rock record is expected to have: cohesion, coherence, sensibility, poetic enlightenment and a profound and intense level of musicality.
Evidently, this is not an album for all audiences. People who dislike slow, serene and metaphysic music may find very boring this record. But its conflagrating, captivating and almost celestial artistry relies solid in the boundaries of the primordial senses created by the proficiency of its planetary dimensions.
Definitely a very outstanding and outgoing work, Miscellany reveals a very genuine and confident band. With a style of their own, that knows how to take beauty out of delightful harmonies, Sky Flying By offers us a different perspective on the genre. Full of more subtle, pure and divine colors, this album definitely initiates us in a very different axis of musical artistry. Exceedingly amazing, perennial and relaxed, but profoundly intense at the same time, Miscellany is a very original album, with splendidly creative nuances, that not only honors post rock, but certainly offers to the ones who haven’t been introduced to the genre the opportunity to appreciate an amazingly beautiful and incredible record.
