Anoice – "The Black Rain" ~under the radar

Have you been searching for new music to no avail?! Will I am here to help you! I recommend everyone check out Anoice’s latest LP called “The Black Rain”.
This 6 piece post rock band from Tokyo has been making music since 2004. This is possibly one of the saddest post-rock albums I have ever heard. It will tug at your heart-strings just as much as any Godspeed You! Back Emperor song, but is much more introspective and personable. They de-emphasize crescendos a lot compared to other third gen post-rock bands, and they seem rather conservative about what and when instruments are playing. Also, they emphasize the use of strings and piano much more.
Here is a sample:
Recommended for fans of: Mono, World’s End Girlfriend, powder! go away, Zbogom, Ajda, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The American Dollar, etc.
