GLASTON // I AM WHOLE - LTD. TRANS ORANGE W/ BLACK SPLATTER (2LP VINYL)
RELEASE DATE: November 11, 2022
“There’s still so much to feel.” Out of everything in the Swiss quartet glaston’s bio for their sophomore record I Am Whole, this single, simple phrase resonates the loudest. It is likely that the overwhelming majority of dedicated post-rock fans first found themselves called to the genre because the dramatic, heartfelt, voiceless compositions spread across its impressively varied landscape allowed them to feel in ways they may not have been able to approach otherwise. The more indirect narrative that emerges from the lack of vocal presence allows one to take the journey in exactly the manner that suits them, and it is that unique experience that has given post-rock a global voice louder in its formlessness than any individual singer could be dictating the action to audiences. This listener-driven emotional core is what gives the form its power, and with that spirit in mind glaston continuously taps into the limitless energy of human passion, encouraging fans to acknowledge and celebrate all the tenderness and intensity that resides within them.
