Artist Spotlight: Autism

One-man music projects always allow for a creative freedom that larger bands simply can't afford. When you're making music on your own, it lets you branch out and experiment with different sounds that may not be viable if you're working in a strictly one-genre environment. Autism is a band from Lithuania that pushes even the boundaries for solo projects, pushing into hopeful experimental post-rock and chugging If These Trees Could Talk vibe with post-metal riffs. The five-song EP coming soon, Falling Motion, features a greatly varied set, with tracks like "Cloudscapes" leaning towards an influence from Explosions in the Sky, and others such as "Bleak Reverie" siting stylistic sway from its darker brethren. It's a curious little release, and I urge you to check it out if you're looking for something to fit your instrumental needs.

You can stream the entire thing for free on Bandcamp, or download the five-track release for free here.
