Building on their 2017 debut Au Nord, Portland’s The Mighty Missoula returns with a robust collection of instrumental explorations. A good soundtrack for those gloomy weather days in the Northwest, Remnants swings between atmospheric calmness and temperamental crescendos while containing pockets of positive energy without being overly dark.

I first heard Pillars when I attended Post. Fest 2018 to hear Heron play (I have 2 talented nephews who are members of that band). I thought the guys in Pillars sounded tight and awesome. This album, CAVUM, just proves even more so that I was correct! My favorites on the album are Dissolution and Black Prayer, but plenty of excellent sounds here! Kenneth Blick
This is a sweeping album. The concept of it feels like a post-rock version of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", and I think they capture the sentiment of each season well. You're likely to be moved by one or several of them. zeuslyone
