UK post-rock outfit Her Name is Calla is celebrating 10 years as a band with a soundtrack to the last decade from playing small clubs to growing into larger and more ambitious performances.  Fans of Balmorhea and the meek musicianship of Sigur Ros will undoubtedly love Calla’s sweet melancholia.  If you ever wondered what it sounded like to hear a violin weep, give this a listen.

Track 1 His Heart Was Going Like Mad is a great example of their perfection of the slow build, starting off with a sparse, mournful piano loop and carefully intertwining it with a menacing guitar growl and pounding drums, then adding strings and synths reminiscent of M83’s very early work from Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts.

As of this post, only 33 of the clear vinyl variants remain.  There’s also a boxset of the album limited to 1oo for the band’s die-hards that will run you $60 before shipping.  Whichever choice you make, these are fleeting fast.
