Genre : Instrumental post-rock
With As the spirit wanes, Codes in the clouds don't reinvent post-rock. Still, they successfully craft a surprisingly good, chilling and highly melodic album, with a fine amount of intensity. I won't describe you again how post-rock is, with its usual guitar melodies, calm parts, heavier ones, rich bass lines and soft drumming. This album is just that, and nothing more. Yet, it's perfectly executed and such a release really deserves attention, as its catchy melodies should please most of instrumental post-rock lovers. One of the highlights in the genre.
