Amidst the noise and guitar shapes contorted in ambient drones and distortions, there remains a cathartic sensation listening to Earthmover’s “First Sighting.” It’s post-rock music with a fang, grinding on explosive instrumental meltdowns and climaxes that feel at once satisfying and bewildering. The quieter moments are nothing short of breathtaking, but it is through the climactic freak-outs, the tensions built and released that make the entire listening experience worth the time.
