ESTER DRANG [I]INFINITE KEYS[/I] REVIEW
Delaware record label Jade Tree continues to put out albums that diverge from the emo tag they were slapped with a few years ago. The latest, Ester Drang, hails from Tulsa, Oklahoma, the same hometown of Hanson, but their music recalls the work of Mogwai or Radiohead more so than that sweet, young-thing pop trio. There is an introspective sound on the Infinite Keys that ebbs and flows, at once verging on improvisation only to crash back towards structure and a previously introduced melody. Moody shoegazers take note: it seems someone else out there understands your pain.
