    Amazing. A more jazz-inflected post-rock, resulting in a pastoral vibe not dissimilar to Boards of Canada. I'd say they're the best band in the world. & Yet & Yet is a little better, though.

    Albums just don't come with this much willingness to exist. Urgent, positive, textured, astonishing.

  1. The album becomes more experimental and confident as it progresses. [#236, p.59]
  2. Winter Hymn is one of the year's memorable, noteworthy listens, and DMST's finest effort overall.
  3. Easily the best work that the group has done.
