AFTERTHOUGHTS
Nosound
(Southbound)

The ghosts of Mogwai. Porcupine Tree and Sigur Ros haunt Afterthoughts, which is the more natural follow-up to Nosounds' A Sense Of Loss despite the fact it has been sandwiched by the semi-acoustic The Northern Religion Of Things.

The 2009 album drew the comment from Prog magazine that the Italian group's songwriter and frontman Giancarlo Erra's "expression of loss is indubitably our gain" and opener In My Fears, a slow cascading, rich and evocative guitar washed minor chord anthem confirms that Erra is still enmeshed in a world of pain.

The atmospherics are lovely and lyrical and, even if Nosound show of their aforementioned influences a little too freely, there's a lot to like about their fourth studio album.
