The last decade has seen Jackson, MS as one of the forerunning scenes for¬†heavy, ambient post rock, and many of the groups have additional vocal accompaniment. ¬†Mississippi natives Colour Revolt¬†were one of the first groups¬†that disproved my “post-rock doesn’t need vocals to enhance the music” opinion. ¬†Waypoint¬†is in the same camp, using haunting lyrical content and structure¬†to¬†intensify the genre. ¬†No doubt influenced by their surroundings, Waypoint paint a dark, somber picture of their homeland in the same way that Explosions in the Sky soundtrack the flat, sweeping plains of West Texas.

Spartan Records has a few more color variants for your perusal, so check ’em out after the BUY¬†link. ¬†It’s time to dust off those winter albums again, and you just may need to add Waypoint to the pile.
