Old Faith – Old Faith

It would be easy to expect most people to come into this wondering who Old Faith is, assuming they’re a fresh band hitting the scene with a debut record. And you’d actually be partially correct, but there’s more to the story where this Greensboro, North Carolina quartet is concerned. This…

Post Rock Post // August 2018

Praise be, after hearing my complaints about the paucity of quality releases in July, the post-rock gods have smiled favorably upon us and have brought us good fortune as the hellish days of summer (hopefully, please, have mercy on my pale self) slowly fade into the crisper and bountiful days of autumn.

This was largely because their youth and courage as a band allowed them to make the drastic change with a confident energy that bled into each song. As risky as their move was, it was as calculated as one could possibly make it. Now it’s time to see if the band’s latest album, Every Nothing, continues the payoff of that risk they took four years ago.
