This is Cinema - Birth

It's always a good feeling when your friends start bands you enjoy. That way when the inevitable question of "what do you think of my band?" comes up, you can be totally honest and say, "I think it's great." In fact, when this EP came out a few years ago, I listened to it constantly. Something about them really struck me. Perhaps it's because This is Cinema sound instantly familiar while remaining very original or maybe it's Ben's deep baritone or the beautifully layered arrangements of strings. Whatever the case may be, I think it's a great EP from a band that should have done more. These six songs aren't enough to satisfy me.

Seriously man. It bums me out so hard that this band is pretty much defunct. Probably the best indie debut from any band in the past... 10 years? Goddamn.
