Originally released as a CDEP by Amnot Records in May of 2007, Faces In The Architecture’s post-rock reverb, dynamic time signatures and swelling atmospherics owes much to bands like Explosions In The Sky, but the warm textures, experimentation and earnest vocals tend to evoke indie rock heroes such as Built To Spill and The Appleseed Cast. Building The State is both dynamic and moving while simultaneously weaving a subtle backdrop of mesmerizing sound. You can stream a few tracks on the band’s myspace page.

– Guitars shimmer and intertwine beautifully and the band injects a dose of math-rock technicality…an intriguing EP. – Rock Sound
– Drawing the best from indie and math and the combination is on par with the best that both genres have to offer. – Glide Magazine
