We’ve seen several masterful instrumental albums during this fantastic year but few of them flow as well as Terrapin does. Perhaps this has a lot to do with the three opening tracks, operating as one suite. ‘Laughing With Such Abandon’ is the heaviest of the trio, splicing the post rock influences of the entire suite with heavier, faster riffs and drums. ‘Where Every Word Spoken, Speaks’ is easily comparable to sleemakeswaves, invoking the same heady and dynamic approach to the ambient post rock sound as those Australian magicians. Finally, ‘And Every Glance Has Only One Meaning’ opens with a bass line so natural, so right for where it’s placed, that it brings in an instant smile to one’s face. The sleepmakeswaves sound is retained, with the guitar chiming in the background, accentuating the entire track as it works its away to its slower, emotional closing.
