A WORLD BROMIERE FROM MY FAVORITE POST ROCK BAND WITH BEARDS? YESSSSSSsssssss.
This Patch of Sky have yet to create something that hasn't made me smile. And not one of those OH HEY I'M SMILING BECAUSE I'M HAPPY AND/OR INTOXICATED smiles, but rather one of those "if anyone saw my face right now I'd be arrested for looking creepy as I stare out the mental ward window" smiles.
Fulfilling, enlightening, encouraging, motivating, relaxing, invigorating... TPoS have managed to stroke nearly every bone in my body with one of the previously typed wordsies.
They aren't just composing amazingly beautiful instrumental music under the genre classified rain cloud of post rock, they're crafting soundtracks to the hundreds of different emotions we all feel throughout the day, at any given time.
I see This Patch of Sky, and the world premiere of "Ten Thousand Hours", as yet another baseball card like collectible of things that I absolutely fucking love from a band that I'm borderline obsessed with.
When this band's new album comes out, I'll be the first guy in suburban Illinois to cop it, but I encourage you now to START STALKING THIS BAND WITH US, because we aren't the only jagbags on the internet giving these guys props yo. EVERYONE ELSE IS NOTICING WHAT WE'VE BEEN WRITING ABOUT FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, so should you.
