CAESAR HOLIDAY, A: Self-titled: CD

This is a mostly instrumental album of what the band describes as “an inspired interpretation of post-rock and avant-garde.” I’m not familiar with too much of anything that falls under that umbrella, so I can’t really say it sucks, but I can say that this isn’t my thing. Lots of melodies throughout this record, the songs are about five minutes each and follow a prog rock structure. Plenty of violin and complicated guitar work as well. I guess I could see using some of the songs with a less menacing vibe to them as white noise while trying to fall asleep, but otherwise this one will be collecting dust until I can get it off to the used record store. Give me The Copyrights any day.
