For those who have listened to the stream, what's your favorite track thus far?
https://hazymountains.bandcamp.com/album/small-hours

As you can imagine, I've listened to this release quite a bit in releasing it, and I'd say my favorite track on the whole release is Track 3, 'Silver Screen'.

It starts out like a dreamy lullaby and gradually builds into this epic wailing guitar before it lulls you back down.

Track 6 'Cardinal' is another favorite too. You'll know why when the sax kicks in.

Track 9 'Toska' is great driving music. It gets me pumped every time. 

 

This is a release that I can truly listen to from front to back every time.  Not a single bad or boring track!

Echoing a few others here. To me, the opening track (Small Hours) really gives this album the right to live in your car and never leave. This is driving music defined. I really can’t wait to spin this, because it’s going to take me on numerous road trips without ever leaving the house during cold winter evenings.

I'm going to have to go with "Toska".

I like the instrumental tracks better overall, and that one is best of them. It reminds me of Rephlex/early-Warp IDM production but mixed with shoegaze. It's like a Seefeel track, and that's high-praise in my books.

My favorite has to be "Be Around." Love the pulsing synth that carries through the song. The various riffs with the higher pitch synths work perfectly. Kinda get some Empire of the Sun vibes off of it. Added this one to my driving playlist!
