The Soft Breaking - Born Old

Born Old

"We're instrumental rock from South Florida, and Born Old is our debut album. Although there's a diversity of styles such as subtle and soft to loud distortions using electric electronic and acoustic instruments, we feel there's also a flow to the album as a whole. For brevity of musical description, some similar sounding music (not intended as comparisons, but rather as familiar references): Explosions In The Sky, Godflesh, Isis, Mogwai, Radiohead, Tool."

Really dug this once I let it get rolling; whether it was spastic tremolo guitar, an unexpected drum fill, or a song relayed over Morse code...this album kept me interested.  Nice to hear a sweeping post-rock vibe without the bass buried in the background.  The scattered electronic/effect touches throughout the album definitely add a lot, even with the occassional horn/strings rounding out their sound.

Good stuff, album is $9 but free to stream and definitely worth checking out one way or the other.  If you're in Florida and play music, they'd probably like to hear from you.
