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.
