Album Review

Taking a slightly different route than on their previously uniformly solid releases, Windsor for the Derby eschews the weighty instrumentals of their past in favor of a mix emphasizing vocals, solemn acoustic guitars, and florescent keyboards. On their fourth album, the minimalist and hypnotic tendencies of their past remain, with Dan Matz and Jason McNeely remaining as the only full-time members of the band. Now walking the line between spacy folk and chamber pop, the arrangements of twinkling guitars and intricately repeated rhythms give the set a much different dynamic than their previous recordings. If that entails that The Emotional Rescue LP is their most accessible release, that isn't to imply that this is a shrewd attempt at commerciality, as tracks like "Mythologies" offer more than a few reminders of their old sounds. Enchanting in a newly cinematic way, moments such as "Now I Know the Sea" and the title track enjoy an emotional intimacy that was not always apparent in their earlier releases. All in all, a release that seems to present a band on the verge of an artistic breakthrough.

This album exceeded my expectations! anyone would be dumb not to buy it:) listen/buy "Now i know the sea"! it has an awsome beat and tender lyrics

truly talented>>

this album is well worth the cost: support the band and wear out the tunes. windsor for the derby is really a great example of true musical talent free from the egotistical record companies and unworthy publicity plaguing the music sphere of today. as opposed to it being the product of some bloated budget and image-obsessed producers, their art is truly their own. its hard to come across down to earth, real bands like windsor for the derby. <<buy it.
