Your Daily Lick: Empty Rooms

Lacuna EP (self-released)



Empty Rooms' second E.P. is desperately seeking definition. Even for those who relish drone, it's tough to stay engaged — especially during post-rock centerpiece "Twenty," which takes eight minutes to go nowhere. Closer "We've Been Waiting for You," dream-pop with lithe vocals and an uplifting crescendo, hits the mark a tad too late.
