Six Parts Seven Things Shaped In Passing

Following the blueprint for the languid and mellow side of instrumental "rock that’s bored of rock” (let's keep "post-rock" dead and buried for now) set by such bands as Directions In Music, are the Six Parts Seven. While not really bringing anything new to the table, Six Parts Seven seem to be perfectly at ease with pleasantly plucking away by their lonesome. Occasionally they crest into a mildly declamatory passage or slight brush with stutter-step 4/4 evasion (as most effective on the first track, "Where Are The Timpani Heartbeats?"), but they are more apt to, well, merely linger unobtrusively.
