Tell Me To Give Up

Following up 2011's split with Desert of Hiatus, Jason Calhoun has composed a masterful work of post-rock infused ambient. Perhaps the most cinematic and powerfully moving release on the label thus far, "Tell Me To Give Up" explodes with tidal waves of searing distortion that relentlessly tear at the heartstrings, beckoning even more melody to emerge from the rubble of one's crumbling realization. Calhoun's arrangements command a return to the most painful experiences of one's life not to induce those feelings once again, but to discover that everything will be okay in the end.
