Gregor Samso - Rest

I heard the first album from Gregor Samsa called simply 55:12 a couple years ago and while I enjoyed it did not really stick with me and I lost touch with it. Recently I discovered they had released a newer album called Rest and decided to give it a try. Unlike their previous effort which I may revisit after hearing Rest I immediately fell for it. Maybe its just the mood I am in, Im not sure. The music is haunting and slow, a little post-rock, a little ambient and all of it is really beautiful. The preview song above is the last song on the album and is called Du Meine Leise. Note that it is one of the most gentle songs on the album, the band is six members strong and the songs explore a lot of ideas while remaining within that calm restful theme they created with this release. Highly recommended.
