The tranquil beauty of gads and gads of "post-rock" instrumental bands (Explosions in the Sky, Red Sparrowes, et al) mated tastefully with Postal Service-styled, bucolic electronica. Guitars with just enough grit float like silt in the stream of warm piano, keyboard and synth swells.

"The Slow Wait," a duology, begins with "Pt. 1"'s laggard gear-turning. It's several moments before a nautical synthesizer chord manages to break the silence. A descending piano theme develops, spiced with drums and languid acoustic guitar. "Pt. 2," and to some degree the rest of the album, are essentially variations on a theme.

The theme is tree sap tempo electronica. Even the digital-spawned pieces of "A Memory Stream" sound profoundly organic in context, evoking the oft elusive feeling of desolate beauty, much sought-after by post-rockers everywhere---yet it is somehow the digital elements which humanize and ground listeners. Boredom doesn't enter into the equation, as it might with so many other releases from other bands of the same persuasion. "A Memory Stream" is a record you put on when life feels like a hotel room in Lost in Translation.

The busiest tracks, for those so inclined, are probably "Transcendence," "Starscapes," and the latter half of "Our Hearts Are Read.

I stumbled across these guys whilst surfing last.fm. The style is a purely instrumental mishmash of indie rock, post-rock, an electronica. While many post-rock songs can be epic sonic odysseys of eight minutes or more, the tracks on this album tend towards more easily accessible or even "poppish" lengths of around 3-5 minutes. In fact, the band's sensibilities overall are more on the pop side of things, with plenty of catchy rhythms and melodies. The album starts out with the two-part "the slow wait," the second half of which is probably my favorite track on the album. The style of the whole thing is pretty cohesive, but the short tracks result in a deftly executed and fast-paced journey through melody after catchy melody that keeps it from getting too old. It's a great album, and pretty accessible even to someone who's not really into the post-rock scene. A sweet, fun little ride.

I love everything that these guys create, but this is probably my favorite of them all. Everything from the names of the tracks, to the guitar and drums...this is something you can sit and listen to for hours. This is great life music.

The Memory Stream is very non-offensive without ever treading into pedestrian territory. The guitars swirl around your cabeza without the crescendo of artists like Explosions In The Sky. A great soundtrack for coming down from an all night EITS party. Enjoy.
