Ephemeral Sun: Prototype 19.5

Pretend for a moment that you had to limit yourself to one breathtaking music experience a year. If that were the case, you might as well limit yourself to "Fall Betrays The Earth" on Ephemeral Sun's Prototype 19.5. Sure, the rest of it (especially the quirky but not too quirky instrumental work here--mainly the Rushlike ". . . Winter Has No Mercy") is all well and good but there's something about Laurie Ann Haus's voice at the top of that tune that makes you want to chuck it all and leave the song on repeat all night and all day until the end of the year. There's something about the purity of it, something about the naked emotion of it that hit me hard and left me reeling for this disc's next three tracks.

Haus is a great asset to the band's sound and, thankfully, they have the good sense not to overuse her, something that you have to hope will carry over when Ephemeral Sun make their stunning debut album. Take your time, people, we know you want to get it right. In the meantime, we'll hang onto this.
