In the past, this post-rock institution’s grand proclamations and emotions have usually been abstracted: an old man lamenting his nostalgia for the beach, broken ecclesiastical speeches and long, winding instrumental climaxes… Of course, the last of these is present in abundance on Luciferian Towers, but the lyrics accompanying the album are more explicit, demanding an end to prisons, foreign invasions and borders, and the provision of basic needs as a human right. The band patiently builds toward huge musical moments, which should sound absolutely glorious in Brooklyn’s finest green space.
