I've lost a lot of interest in "post-rock" over the years (the crescendo formula was getting as predicable as a "drop" in dubstep) - but this is a really nice exception. I listened to this album all the way through a couple of times yesterday and I recommend it for those of you who enjoy post-rock and even modern classical compositions. It is a lot more dynamic and complex than most build-up/break-down post-rock.
I would also like to suggest streaming and/or purchasing Hiatus Kaiyote's "Tawk Tomahawk" - an unusual neo-soul/jazzy album that is hard to describe. Watch this video and I think you'll be sold:
