Boomkat Product Review:
Melbourne band This Is Your Captain Speaking are a post-rock band to be categorised alongside Spokes, Sickoakes and Explosions In The Sky, spinning a cinematic sound propelled by effects-treated guitars and epic melodies. Eternal Return provides a welcome follow-up to the band's album Storyboard on Resonant, and certainly, fans of that label (now sadly in suspended animation since the recent Our Sleepless Forest release) will appreciate this material. There's nothing within these five compositions that threatens to sonically confound you, although the material never ceases to be meticulously realised and beautifully produced - full of air and light. 'Incirculation' rocks the hardest, building and expanding admirably throughout its nine-and-a-half minutes, while 'Part 3' and 'Lullaby' present a more pensive, soundscaping persona, the former being suggestive of Mogwai at their most sinister and subdued. Good stuff.
