♫♪  Deep Earth - “Speak My Language”

Is it good or bad when a band in 2011 reminds you of David Gilmour? Shit, maybe I need to expand my musical horizons, get better references. Anyway, look what this press blurb says:

Subverting the ear, Deep Earth never builds to a climax of bombast or decoration, opting instead for sophisticated maneuvers above an adamant percussion that achieve an ascending tension.

It is interesting how the statement implies that bombast and musical catharsis (big payoffs) are the opposite of sophistication. Crass or cheap, I guess? This mentality just highlights how outright sentiment is still laughed at in hip culture, while a continuously ascending blank stare passes the barometer for coolness. This is why post-rock sucks now.
