Since 2006, Austin's Balmorhea have been mining the ground of minimalistic post-rock to much critical acclaim. Throughout their career the band's music has always had a strong narrative. Each track feels as if a short story is being told. The band's latest, Stranger, sees the group stepping away from minimalism and ratcheting up their classical and rock influences for a record that feels as if it was tailored to serve as the backing to a late-period Terrence Malick film.
