Let Yourself Be Huge by Cloudkicker (2011)

Kind of Like: Owen, Russian Circles, El Ten Eleven
Genres: Post-rock, Ambient, Math Rock, Metal, Progressive
Preview/Buy: Bandcamp

"Cloudkicker is one man progressive metal project from the artist B.M. Sharp, heavily influenced by math metal and post-metal. Sharp utilizes drum machines and custom tuned guitars in his recordings. progressive and instrumental influences are also obvious in his music."

I didn't think of a progressive metal album when "Welcome Back" started.  In fact, the first thing that came into mind was Owen.  For the most part this is an acoustic/clean album that has various elements of metal/progressive music incorporated into it.  The result is a pretty...pretty album, that feels perfect for the last throws of the fall.  It's quite cozy.
