Even though I’ve never really gotten the chance to write about it here, I’m a pretty big fan of the music created by bands like Caspian. I’m talking mostly instrumental post-rock that tends to draw emotions out of you that you might have never thought possible by music that lacks vocals. But hey, that’s just the power of incredible songwriting and dynamics, both of which have been honed by the guys in Caspian. And before I get any further in this post, I want to send my condolences to the band as they recently lost bassist Chris Friedrich.
They’re getting ready to move forward, though, because they have a new EP, Hymn for the Greatest Generation, coming out on Nov. 11. We are honored to premiere one of the cuts on the project here at Potholes, and it’s the Lazerbeak remix of “Halls of The Summer”. The original clocked in at over five minutes as it appeared on last year’s Waking Season, but the Doomtree producer condensed it a bit and threw his own noisy elements into the mix. Make sure you’re playing this one as loudly as possible.
You can stream the remix below.
