ESMERINE – Lost Voices (Constellation)

Esmerine were formed by ex-members of Godspeed and A Silver Mt Zion, and so you just know that this album is going to consist of pastoral chamber/post-rock, which it certainly does. Cello and marimba are augmented here by guest violin from Godspeed’s Sophie Trudeau, which adds an extra depth to their lush instrumental sound. I’d never even heard of the band before this, but I’ll be making up for that now.
