Artist Spotlight: The Saddest Landscape

The Saddest Landscape has been making a name for itself since its 2010 album, You Will Not Survive.  And although I personally really dug the dark, melancholy feel, I'll admit it didn't tear down conventions.  What it did do, however, was display the potential of a wonderfully creative group of young men.

You Will Not Survive was pretty much the definition of a solid album, coasting along and never resting on its laurels.  It was enough to garner the attention of a lot of followers of the genre, with the "blogoshere" chatting about them for the last several months.  All of this talk is mainly about the band's upcoming record, After the Lights.  With the short time I've spent with the album, I can safely say this is something one may want to keep on radar.  It retains the fierce, murky undertones of their previous record, while adding some beautiful sections as well.  It's powerful stuff for sure, but for those who've been following the band, that shouldn't come as a surprise.

After the Lights will be dropping on February 14th, so be sure to check it out then!
