The HUGE new album from the emo / progressive-rock outfit TWIABP... Fans of Foxing, American Football, Tigers Jaw and Pianos Become The Teeth should check this out.
From its massive scope to its resilient humanist idealism, “Fewer Afraid” conveys just about everything this band has ever excelled at. If TWIABP were seeking a capstone for their career, they could not do much better than this. Particularly when paired with “Infinite Josh,” it could easily be the sound of a band sticking the landing on their entire discography. Yet if those liner notes are to be believed, this crew has no interest in stopping, and Illusory Walls is no concluding statement. Good. The world needs bands this over-the-top, this in love with their own vision, unafraid to whip up a racket as big as their feelings and ideas and fully capable of bringing it to pass. - Stereogum
