Biscuit Shrine unveils An Album

Biscuit Shrine, the brainchild of Ryder Lush, unveils its inaugural album, Between the Real. This venture into instrumental territory carves a space nestled between the realms of post-rock and ambient soundscapes. Lush, the sole architect behind the album, not only performs every instrument but also takes on the mixing responsibilities, later entrusting the mastering to a professional.

Crafting within this genre solo is no mean feat, yet Lush navigates it masterfully. The album commences with "That Was Then," drawing listeners into a comforting embrace right from its opening notes. There's a comforting familiarity in its essence, reflecting the emotional tapestry akin to the everyday highs and lows, though the transition into the harder section feels a tad abrupt. "Lisp" emerges as a near-perfect piece, a seamless tapestry of shifting and intertwining notes that evoke a dreamlike quality.

"Denmark," on the other hand, employs the familiar soft-to-loud dynamic, presenting an ambitious and formidable musical endeavor. "Shadows Hide In Empty Space" captivates with its sheer beauty, as guitars gently swell amidst drum beats that resonate like echoes in a cavern, inducing a trance-like state.

"Map The Days" and "Wasted" serve as succinct interludes, paving the way for the magnum opus, "Ian - Discontinuum," a monumental track that culminates the album on a soaring high. While the influences are perceptible, Between the Real emerges as a standout in the realm of post-rock this year. Enthusiasts of the genre are bound to revel in the artistry displayed within this album, marking it as a must-listen amidst the year's offerings.
