Cymbals Eat Guitars - Why There Are Mountains

Self-released debut album coming from another Brooklyn indie rock band, though this time what first comes to my mind is actually Canadian super-group Broken Social Scene. Maybe because "Why There Are Mountains" has an epic sound, full of peaks and valleys (that title has an explanation after all), but mostly because there's that special ability to create something meaningful out of chaos and experimentalism. And in the midst of all the instruments almost fighting against each other, great songs seem to emerge. (7/10)
