After their excellent album Erosion of the Black Speckle, Heaven in Her Arms takes a step forward with this brilliant EP. 被覆する閉塞 has the same great intensity and raw emotion found on the band's full-length, combined with those great melodic post-rock elements, only more focused and with better, more on-key vocals.

This really makes me want to learn Japanese; at least I can understand a word here and there. But the power of the music renders comprehension of the lyrics almost unnecessary -- it's the guitar work that really shines here. Beautiful lead guitars float over a solid foundation of chugging rhythms and take center stage as the heaviness fades into gentler post-rock sections to match that genre's best acts.

Heaven in Her Arms is swiftly becoming my favorite "screamo" band, precisely because they're not true screamo at all; rather, they combine elements of metal and post-hardcore flawlessly with the instrumentation and harmonies of post-rock to yield a delightful aural mixture. Fans of the previous album should definitely give this EP a shot, and even those who didn't like it may find something worthwhile on 被覆する閉塞. Very highly recommended!

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
