German instrumental quartet Frames present 10 tracks of progressively minded vocal-less tracks entitled IN VIA. This unit’s savvy sense of shifting dynamics and ability to compose luxurious arrangements teeters the line between serenity and soaring (“Reflections”), led by piano when dialing the mood down (“Coda”) and by guitar when building momentum (“Stir”). Exhibiting a knack for developing a dream-like atmosphere that still finds the druthers to shake a few feathers in the down comforter around with some moments of stinging six-string shoegaze (“Encounter”), Frames demonstrate their take on post rock with cinematically-minded structures and dramatic songwriting at the forefront of their attack (“Encounter”). -Mike SOS
