kirillk That's pure art, sound quality is awesome, all the layers create an experience of sonic journey. I wonder it's still possible to get LP some 2 years after the release. Favorite track: Tarka.

Martin SK I'd say with this record, this band has really found their sound. Beautiful melodies together with walls of noise, all intermingled with stunning ambient pieces. The production is lush and vibrant.
It's a peaceful journey but there's always something around the corner to keep you on your toes.
Excellent record, can't believe I overlooked this for so long. Favorite track: Tarka.

norskeld I've tried to find the words that could describe the range of feelings and images arising while listening to this album, but nothing came of it. Perhaps because that's the case when words mean nothing. The only thing you need to do is to dive to the very bottom of the album to feel that emotional pressure of the sound, to get choked up because of flashbacks, to get chilled to the shivers... Insanely beautiful, powerful and intimate journey. Favorite track: Tarka.

Solanje Very nice "post-rock" escape. This record has found its place next to my Red House Painters' collection. Favorite track: Even if I never see you in this life....

RM Their self-titled debut was solid. But this... this was worth every second of the wait. East the Water links together intense sonic thunderclaps and weaves a beautiful aural tapestry without becoming cacophonous or redundant. Simply put, this album fucking destroys. Lots of emotion, lots of power, lots of violence. This album has grown on me tremendously. I consider it one of the best albums of 2015. Favorite track: In Event of Moon Disaster.

Jonathan Spratling If Ranges is the soundtrack to Montana, this is a night drive through rural Georgia (they're from Atlanta). Love it.

"Nearly five years ago, the debut full-length of a little-known band from Atlanta, Georgia came and went without much fanfare. For any number of artists this could have been both the beginning and the end of their story. But ever so slowly, Of The Vine began to spread their wings and this record, the intriguingly titled East-the-Water started to grab the ears of devoted post-rock fans scattered around the globe. The album art, somehow both melancholy and inviting with its simple yet striking image of a fog-shrouded meadow, manages to perfectly translate the experience of listening to what lay beyond its transfixing imagery. It is an album that is deceptively simple in its composition, one that holds onto secrets and wonders reserved for the diligent listener. Bringing together the most intoxicating elements of post-rock, ambient and doom, it emerges as a record that can feel intimate and immeasurably expansive in the same moment. It reveals a group of musicians placing the highest value on patience, the spaces between notes, and the careful construction of towering walls of sound from the humblest of beginnings. Over the course of its seven tracks it is sometimes the most achingly beautiful thing you’ve ever heard, other times it consumes you in crushing waves of irrepressible volume. Despite its unassuming entrance in 2015, East-the-Water has stood the test of time, continued to painstakingly build its reputation piece by piece, and now sits among the best post-rock releases of the 2010’s.

We first crossed paths with Of the Vine when they joined the lineup of dunk!usa back in 2017. We never forgot the impression they made, as their memorable performance resulted in the first pressing of East-the-Water selling out at the merch table. So when we realized that their new LP Left Alone would be released in partnership with both dunk!records and A Thousand Arms, we couldn’t allow East-the-Water to remain in limbo. This fantastic record is making its first appearance in nearly three years with our re-press, and we couldn’t be happier to share it with excited fans and newcomers alike."
