First Listen Review: Toe – “Hear You”

toe_hearyou_942_72

The Good: This Post-rock LP is quite different to the usually electric guitars and drums. It still has the essential little vocals and ambience, but it’s done through an acoustic guitar style more akin to a Jose Gonzalez. THe combination with some more minimalist and scattered drumbeats makes it seem a little math-rocky as well. I also love the way each song, especially in the beginning, flows from one to the next.

The Bad: The middle to end of the album lacks in variety. It’s still good, but the songs don’t stand out like the first couple.

Would I Listen Again: Yes
