And the Sea Won the Battle (self-released)
Glaciers chose its name well. This local instrumental rock band has a sound that’s both serene and majestic — similar to Russian Circles, but a lot less metal. Even if you believe that instrumental bands are boring, Glaciers is worth a listen — technically skilled and often stunningly beautiful, it’s music for people who really love music. Who needs lyrics when you can create a sound this compelling without them?
