The first track I heard from this band--They Move on Tracks of Never-Ending Light--still enthralls me the same way each time I hear it. Even if the TWDY sound has evolved from this album, their style is still very apparent in these tracks and it's an album I've returned to many times.
Favorite track: They Move on Tracks of Never-Ending Light.
“S/T” is the second album from THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, clocking in at 7 tracks and 52 minutes. Recorded and produced by John Congleton (EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, MODEST MOUSE, R. KELLY), it is a stunning and worthy follow-up to “Young Mountain.” Darker and seamlessly more dynamic and emotionally gripping than its predecessor, “S/T” is primed and ready to push their entire genre forward and continue to win the band hearts and minds across the planet. This is a landmark album by a band that will inevitably be mentioned in the same breath as MOGWAI and SIGUR RÓS without hesitation. Dive in.
