2009 release, a major departure and massive leap forward from Apse's most notable predecessor. Spirit, which was completed four years prior. They return with a different line-up and their horizons broadened. This is the sound of a Post Post-Rock band reaching out to a new audience, and finding a new identity. Where Spirit explored a dark world of reverberant guitars, ambient passages and minimal, haunting vocals, Climb Up proves a bold step out of that darkness. Climb Up is wildly unique, versatile, and inarguably the bravest yet most accessible work by the band.
