It seem that Constellation Records can do no wrong this year (consider Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Eric Chenaux, Colin Stetson/Sarah Neufeld, Ought, Siskiyou, Jerusalem in My Heart) and you can add Esmerine to that list. If the song “The Neighbourhoods Rise” reminds you of Godspeed then it’s for good reason as Esmerine features many members of GYBA (perhaps most notably the morose violin of Sophie Trudeau). The piece moves quite purposefully from a tentative, mournful beginning to a crashing climax of celebratory guitars.
