- Words: Brion Paul

This Swedish six piece fuses spooky, echoing pianos, infinity-reverberating guitar lines, and hushed percussion into an all-instrumental, narrative-soaked treatise, one that evokes expansive post-rock vistas and oceans of sound. While Godspeed You Black Emperor! and the like favor bombastic drama, Sickoakes moves forth with a quiet, consistent confidence. This album is an engulfing, ecstatic experience, best heard while drifting through the fog, slowly, slowly seawards.
