Restorations: A/B 7"

Restorations have been among my few favorite local(ish) band discoveries in the recent years. Philly has always had an enviable scene for the cinematic post-hardcore set. Luckily for us, The City That Loves You Back is close enough that the gents have made it into our fair Gotham with some regularity in recent months. There are a larger than average number of acoustic Restorations shows that I have yet to be particularly crazy about, but in their full-on electric (normal) incarnation they are more than a force to be reckoned with.

This 7" comes courtesy of your friends at Tiny Engines. Two songs, called A and B, the former sporting a little late period Chamberlain intro before simmering into so post-Hum indie rockery heavy on the reverb and glissando. The obverse starts things off with a gritty rhythm section throwdown before taking flight for six minutes of epic bliss.  You want this. I'm damn excited to see them come through and play this live.

Buy it here.
