Tomoreaux-At Peace, Overlook
Post Rock/Shoegaze/Hints of Math Rock
RIYL: Explosions In the Sky, Mogwai, Godspeed... & Wild Nothing
Summary: An outfit from Buffalo, NY, Tomoreaux is a post-rock quartet led by J. Kaufman and Kevin Stuitje. At Peace, Overlook is their debut album under their new name. Heavily atmospheric. Uses droning guitars, thick layers of sound, dramatic use of the drum kit, and distant vocals.

Recommended Tracks: 1,5,6,7
No FCCs detected

1) Zion (6:03)
Most emotional song of the LP. Guitar riff with layers of drum and vocals. Lonely mood.
2) In Plain Air (4:19)
A harp carries the riff through the piece. Some falsetto and female vocals make an appearance.
3) Vagus (6:45)
More subdued, a couple time signature changes à la math rock.
4) Bennington (6:46)
Starts off in a thoughtful mood, frenzied drone guitar peppers it later on, while some vocals are half-chanted like someone reciting a school rhyme
5) Taiga (6:49)
Distant and dreamy at first, a lot of changes in mood, one of the sweeter of the album. Some cool use of feedback and prominent drums.
6) Roads (4:27)
Synth-bells carry the riff for this track. More downtempo and innocent-sounding, with the most prominent vocals of the album.
7) Constellation (4:46)
Melodic guitar riff and snares. Has a pleasant, peaceful, and more unambiguously positive vibe.
8) No Map (5:48)
Most melodic vocals of the album. Acoustic guitar featured here and active use of the drum kit. Another mantra-like use of lyrics in the falsetto.
