Album Notes
It's how rock stars should be:

"When I think of concert audiences, I think of people screaming to hear a favorite band, people swaying to the music or maybe even dancing, and having a nice brew or two while checking out a group. I did this on August 30.

I did not expect to hear screams of agony pouring forth behind the mix of guitars and cello on stage. I was startled, gazing into the audience for the source only to realize that it was not the audience but the instruments themselves. This ghost-like experience gave me the chills.

AristeiA takes the strong droning guitar-work of Explosions in the Sky and adds to it cello and vocals for a sound that reverberates and washes over audiences from quiet melodies to drowning noise—and everything in-between.

I was surprised at the power behind the group before me, adding to it a strong stage presence and friendly after-the-show demeanor, running around the Doug Fir basement shaking hands, giving hugs, and dancing to We're From Japan.

It's how rock stars should be."
-Andy Fense

James Wilks

Post-rock, with an emphasis on the rock
With only three tracks, Aristeia continues to show that they are a force to be reckoned with in the world of post-rock. These three songs really remind me of Explosions In The Sky. They start out slow and pretty, and they build up into powerful, hard-rocking songs with fuzzed-out guitars, usually coming back down again after the crescendo. At 22 minutes long, this EP is another great addition to not only Aristeia's catalog, but post-rock as a whole.

Great guitar driven melodies
Smooth and dreamy, then distorted and powerful. And then dreamy again. Post-rock at its best.
I like Self Will Run Riot a lot, but... Goldenwings is a really, really great song, from the beginning (I love the beginning) till the explosive end.
Something to listen to again and again.
