Coalesce Salt And Passage Second Nature 2007
Just two brutal tracks from Kansas City's finest. Both tracks just punch you in the face and get all math-y simultaneously. By this time in the band's history, they were comfortable to explore things on a more sonic level. Rather than just kick your teeth in, the band and long-time producer Ed Rose, were playing around with sounds and harmonies. Buried vocal tracks, cleaning up the insane guitar lines that spill across the band's tracks, and getting super technical behind the drums.
For a simple 7" release, Dan Askew's Second Nature label pulled out all stops on the packaging. Most the vinyl came in color variants. It's sleeved in 7" size gatefold. And the print on the sleeve is well-designed and thought out. Amazing product.
