Martin SK This album transcends everything you ever thought you knew about post-rock. This is more, this is experimental and atmospheric, somber and delicate, gloomy and destructive. Each part of the album tells an immersive story of its own and with the crisp and beautiful production, this feels like a modern classic. Album of the year contender for sure. Favorite track: Industry.

Fran González What an incredibly massive album, it's been a while since an album of this style attracts me so much. Favorite track: Industry.

adrian gonzalvo A lovely new post-rock masterpiece that flows unstoppable. It’s cinematic and passionate, and in its relatively short length it packs a lot of substance and emotion. I’m currently listening to this in an endless loop.

Industry 09:29
“Moi je crois que ce système économique qu’on est en train de développer c’est le système de la lutte en permanence. “Il faut que je l’emporte sur l’autre, il faut que je sois premier, il faut que je sois compétitif.” C’est absurde, ça n’aboutit qu’à des catastrophes c’est ce qu’on est en train de vérifier et je me demande pourquoi on s’y maintient quand même. Oser dire à un enfant j’espère que tu seras premier je pense que c’est un crime, d’abord c’est une stupidité parce que la notion de palmarès n’a aucun sens et surtout ça va amener l’enfant à lutter, prétendument pour se faire, mais avant tout avec comme objectif de l’emporter sur l’autre. C’est ça qu’il faut complètement stopper, on peut très bien s’apercevoir qu’une société pourrait être construite sans compétition.” Albert jacquard 1925-2013

“This is a piece of a big old tree. This tree probably sprouted just about the time Colombus sailed the Ocean Blue. It looks about 500 years old, somewhere in there. This tree probably sprouted just about the time Colombus sailed the Ocean Blue. You know the {?circles of faded log price savings?} have been pretty boring up until about 75 years ago and all hell broke loose out here on the ridge and they started to cut them down, most of them are gone now so we won’t be seeing any of these for at least for 950 years. That’s if we leave them alone. These are amazing old trees.” “The industry tends to call environmentalists radicals. The reality is that 95% of the standing native forest of the United States had been cut down. It’s not radical to try and save the last 5%, what’s radical is logging 95%. This is radical.” An activist from the 2011 documentary: “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front”
