(U.S.) Caravels/Octaves-Split LP (2015)

Country: USA
Genre: Post Hardcore, Post Rock, Screamo
Label: Topshelf/Bridge 9 Records
Tracks: 4
Length: 18.0'

Here's a new killer split 12" featuring new material from two of my current favorite post hardcore bands.  Caravels is a five piece post hardcore band who formed in May of 2006.  Caravels play a tense and progressive style of post hardcore mixed with touches of ambient post rock thrown in for good measure.  On their side of the split, Caravels offer up two tracks of tense, urgent, yet somehow hauntingly ambient sounding post hardcore mixed with post rock.  The second two songs come courtesy of Octaves.  Octaves are a five piece post hardcore band from Baltimore, Maryland who formed in 2009.  Octaves play a similar style of music, but with vocals that tend to be more strained and harsh spectrum of things.  Octaves sound is as equally as progressive and the band even throws in the use of an organ to keep things interesting.  Overall, both bands are brilliantly paired up on this split and both bands offer up top notch material for this EP.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  This 12" was released via Topshelf and Bridge Nine records on January 27th, 2015.
