Sounds like Braille - Right Out of Left Field, Straight to the Middle of Nowhere (2004)
Yes I know what you might be thinking...
When was the last time I posted something not within the last couple years?!
2004's truly wonderful album by Sounds Like Braille is a group that has many influences but honestly they are very much their own animal. Be clear that this is not incredibly busy math rock. It does have early 90's throwback feel to it occasionally and the songs are structured more along the lines of classical composition and post-rock not too mention the clear jazz influence. The hair does get let down to rock on a good amount of these songs.On the whole however its the pace is kept at a medium while allowing room for the instruments to tangle. Im not going to spend an absurd amount of time on this just know that this is a unique listen and a highly rewarding one at that. It is in my opinion a group that rarely gets the props they deserve so hopefully this brings a few more peeps in their direction.
