We get a lot of crap CDs at the self-titled offices. But once in a while, a pleasant surprise slips into our promo stack. Here’s a recent delivery that knocked the S/T staff on its collective ass.
Album: Years (Arts & Crafts)
Vibe: Ornately powerful waking-life vistas from Do Make Say Think multi-instrumentalist Ohad Benchetrit.
RIYL: Furious finger-picking; wishing the Books would, once an album, bust out a gnarly post-rock song; the fantasy of knocking down and rearranging Broken Social Scene’s building blocks[audio:http://www.self-titledmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/02-dont-let-the-blind-go-deaf.mp3]
