2 stars Two fresh songs by UK post-rock band. Third single's song is performed by "Her Name Is Calla" band.

The music is average usual instrumental post-rock, but more of US standard. Twin guitars, bass and drums are all producing enough energy and sound, adding some heavy metal influenced sounds to their mid tempo simple, nostalgic, in some moments even aerial melodies. You can find almost all post-rock attributes there in this two songs.

Main problem is possibly you can't find there one of most important ingredient - originality. Small work for genre's maniacs.

3 stars It is known that between post rock bands there are so many collaborations, because in this particular musical realm the brotherhood is actually real; a post rock musician is probably to participate in at least 3 bands or projects. But well, this time I am reviewing a nice split between maybeshewill with Her Name is Calla, in which the first band offers the first two songs, while the second band collaborates with the third track.

I love maybeshewill, their punch, their intensity that puts themselves on the edge between post rock and post metal, and that can be heard here with "This Time Last Year" whose start is very bombastic with great guitars bass and drums, but its charm lies in how one can hear a contrast in the same track, because later the song calms down and piano delight us with a beautiful moment. And as you can imagine, the intensity returns later and they add spoken words as background, creating that inherent emotional sound. "Last Time This Year" has the same direction, and I am not saying the sound is the same, no, one can listen to two different tracks, but the positive feeling is the same. I actually like this band a lot, so I never feel bored with their music. Here is a nice proof of it.

And the long track is provided by Her Name is Calla, whose music is much softer and delicate, but also beautiful in some moments. The track is "Condor & River"whose length is over 17 minutes. Here we can appreciate the band's skills as composers and performers, the song brings a lot of changes in time and mood, so the first minutes are relaxed and slow, but the intensity increases little by little until it reaches a climax and the musicians let their feelings explode and eat the world. I like this song a lot because it captures the essence of the band, but also the essence of the post rock as a genre, so it is easy to feel interested and excited about it.

It is a nice split that I would recommend you to listen and enjoy. My final grade will be three stars.

Enjoy it!
