Doug Fir

For those days when you need to be left the fuck alone, nothing does it quite like a wordless (or nearly wordless) post-rock composition. Albums by Mogwai, Earth, and Emeralds are ecstatically beautiful, but they don't foist feelings on you. And neither does Caspian. Music like this is seriously beautiful—and also straight-up serious. Caspian have been around since 2003, and their third album, Waking Season, came out in September. Lavish piles of sound—from heavy guitars to angelic synths—layer over each other, and just when you think there can't possibly be one more layer, they heap on 10 more. It's a perfectly realized meditation of the splendid and weighty, like watching a volcano erupt. At over 10 minutes long, "Gone in Bloom and Bough" is a genre-bender, but it doesn't meander so much as lead you on a journey through light and dark, loud and soft. REBECCA WILSON
