Majestic? Epic? These are a few of the many words one could use to describe the exceptional output of The Calm Blue Sea’s eponymous, debut release.

Hailing from Austin, TX, these guys produce a sound rich and full in comparison to hometown, post-rock compadres, Explosions in the Sky. For a genre like post-rock, it’s easy to notice a certain template that many bands follow and few stray too far away from. With this quartet’s first release, you’ll find a shimmering brilliance, a constant journey, aurally fixating throughout.

From start to finish, this album will mesmerize!
