1 - SHY, LOW - HIRAETH - (CD) 
SPARTAN


Hiraeth: a word without a concrete English translation. While evading an unequivocal definition, it exudes melancholy. Those who have attempted to define it describe the word as a mixture of homesickness, nostalgia, grief, and longing. It is the oppressive guilt associated with memories now passed; the bitter remembrance of joyous occasions that can never be revisited. It is also the title of Shy, Low's sophomore full-length album. Just like the word Hiraeth itself, Shy, Low's continual evolution make them a band that is not easy to define. While it would be convenient to corral the band into the bucket of canonical post-rock bands like Mono, Mogwai, and This Will Destroy You, on Hiraeth, Shy, Low's eclectic palate of musical influences are showcased more broadly than ever before. The band earnestly sifts through the complex relationship between music, art, and the emotions that encapsulate the human experience - and in doing so, they've successfully created a brilliantly moving, yet strangely bittersweet 43 minute aural journey. RIYL: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Rs, Mogwai, This Will Destroy You.
