ERAAS by ERAAS, released 02 October 2012 1. Black House 2. A Presence 3. At Heart 4. Ghost 5. Skinning 6. Moon 7. Briar Path 8. Crosscut 9. Fang 10. Crescent 11. Trinity. Absolutely spot on the the mood, but clearly the band is still looking for their final style as the album has obvious highs and lows. It's not that the quality drops, it's just that some songs seem more natural than the others. Lovely album, I recommend.

The sense of creating art that can spirit you away somewhere else entirely is something that most definitely also informs the self-titled debut album from Brooklyn, NY based band ERAAS.

This may be ERAAS' debut album, but Robert Toher and Austin Stawiarz had been making dark, evocative music for years with the post-rock band Apse before moody, sinister sounds became fashionable again in the indie world during the late 2000s and early 2010s. While this latest incarnation of the duo's music fits into that revival pretty well, they use enough of what they learned with Apse to make them more complex, and unexpected, than some of their contemporaries.
ERAAS, though fully invested in the possibilities of their vacuum and their vocal prowess, are at their best when the instruments can breathe.
