AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR / All Hail Bright Futures [2013]

Alt. rock outfit And So I Watch You From Afar push the optimism and their outgoing musical personality on 2013's All Hail Bright Futures.
The act is known for having a very unique and clever approach to their sound, being mostly instrumental they're constantly changing tempos, seamlessly shifting their sonic palette from hard rock to poppy electronic without missing a beat and pushing the happiness an extra mile without ever getting sappy or artificial.  The ideas and musicianship are more than wonderful but with so much going on here not everything glues together when it all comes down to it.  The world's a piece of shit but it doesn't mean you have waste your time to acting like it and ASIWYFA plays like they damn well know it.
