Life from Dead Limbs by Iselia (2011)

Kind of Like: Milanku, Prawn, Explosions in the Sky, Beau Navire
Genres: Screamo, Post-rock, Ambient
Preview: Bandcamp

Kind of hard to see ambient and screamo so close together, but these guys rock it anyways.  There are the quiet, atmospheric moments, but they dont't last to long before the vocals and guitars come crashing back in that jolt you back to your senses.  This did rounds around the blogosphere back in the summer, and I am glad I finally took the time to give these guys from North Carolina a fair shake.  They bring something a tad different to the table and it's always nice to see different instrumentation even if it means just throwing a kerboardist in there. Check out "Last Leaf" and "Restless".  Restless is my fave so far. Update: "At Day's Close" is pretty epic too.
