The beauty of EITS records is rooted in their transportive power. They sweep you up, strap you in and take you someplace else, making you fruitlessly reach for corny, pretentious words when really, there is no shorthand for the emotions stirred by the instrumental Texan quartet.
And album seven is no different, revealing fresh layers, scope, strengths and delicacies with each return journey. ‘The Wilderness’ is the perfect title, too; the album’s nine songs exploring an expansive, evocative range of sounds, grooves, peaks and valleys. Which is to say, this is something really quite special.
