- Self Preserved While the Bodies Float Up by Oceansize
I've never really heard these guys before but I'd always assumed from the name that they'd be indie-ish post-rock. Business Lady says she did a gig with them once and that my preconception was pretty much right but they seem to have gone a bit heavier on this new one, which spends its first few minutes chugging away almost sounding like some sort of Harvey Milk-type effort before going a bit more emo with it, as apparently was always more their wont. It carries on somewhat in that sort of vein, mic-hugging and all that, but they've definitely got some decent chops and aren't shy of flexing them in the service of their meandering, proggy structures. Seems like good quality stuff, but it's not really my thing to be fair.. Nice packaging on the CD version mind.
10/10 Alex Customer review,
With Self Preserved While the Bodies Float Up, Oceansize has produced their best work to date—opening with the chunky metal Part Cardiac, the album quickly whisks you away on a sonic journey that runs the gamut from the blistering prog-metal of Superimposer to some of their most beautiful symphonic work yet with Pine. Self Preserved, unlike the band's previous works, presents no weak tracks to speak of. This is, without a doubt, a masterpiece.It's My Tail and I'll Chase It If I Want To could be longer though...
