God is an Astronaut, or GIAA, is probably a well-known name for your ears. This irish ensemble is lead by twin brothers Niels and Torsten Kinsella who are dedicated to craft stellar soundscapes by combining the highest level Post Rock tapestries with Space Rock, Electronica and some layers of Shoegaze here and there. It's music not only for space tripping, but for the big cities' lights, our headphones  and the deepest realms of our broken souls. So, it's not hard to figure out they accomplished some of the most seminal albums of the Post Rock spheres, such as All Is Violent, All Is Bright (2005) and Far From Refuge (2007), and now they're coming back after 3 years of silence with the Origins album, scheduled to be released officially next month. For those who kept track with GIAA works along the last decade, there aren't big surprises on this one, however, it's possible to notice some guitar works which weren't previously explored in the former albums, as well as stronger electronic elements (which bring references to the GIAA debut, The End Of the Beginning) and "fuzzier" tracks. The often dream-like taste of their music is still present, however, gave more room to the post-futuristic elements this time.

It may not be a transcendental work as the aforementioned works, or the best album of 2013, but it's easily one of the top-10 Post Rock material of the year, besides being an ear candy four our delirant ears. Well, since I think I've got nothing left to say... I just hope you enjoy it! ;)

get it!

ps: yeah, it's a 192 kbps rip, very poor quality. As soon as I get a better version of this, it'll be posted here.  ;)
