Steve Setzepfandt and Josh Wittman are back with their second release on No-Source and third full-length album "Cedarleaf," the follow-up to 2009's "Glass Memories." "Cedarleaf" is Rho's most accessible album to date. It is a beautiful mix of electronic rhythms, synth swirls, and guitar driven melodies; a pop landscape with a mountain range of cinematic style. "Sun Justice" begins the album with soft ambient electronics, leading into the dark, electric guitar-heavy "Mississippi." "K-Eyes" sees Rho switching it up a little, with keyboards handling a potent pop melody. The rest of the album flows like a soundtrack with each song tipping its hat to the next. This all leads up to the fantastic climax that is "Day Into Night," a six-minute guitar-driven epic that crescendos into the shores of Post-Rock. Credits roll with night sounds, field recordings and soft synth pads as "The End Sleep" drifts into silence. This whole release comes highly recommended, especially for fans of Album Leaf / El Ten Eleven / Lymbyc Systym / Boards of Canada.
