It’s old news by now, but in case you hadn’t heard, a series of events has lead us to decide that Narrowing Type will be our last release as Good Night & Good Morning. New things are in the works, but expect it to be different. Thanks to everyone who came out to our final show with The Appleseed Cast, that was an unforgettable night. With that said, we’re honored to have had some nice things said about our album on this Top 50 albums of 2012 list.
“5. Good Night & Good Morning – Narrowing Type
Edging out Caspian for post-rock record of the year and Young Jesus for best Chicago record, Narrowing Type is a masterclass on tone, atmosphere, dynamic, and mood. No record sang me to sleep more this year than this little record from Good Night & Good Morning. Everything I love about post-rock is not only referenced but made a focal point in at least two spots throughout this record. From the gentle vocals to the brilliant (and tastefully restrained) crescendos, there’s not a lacking moment. From start to finish, there’s something here to hold onto that only drags you further into the songs themselves, miniature masterpieces to get lost in. Through its seven tracks, it creates a world so complete and so compelling that every time I passed it by en route to another record, I was tempted to just stop and listen to this one instead. Painfully gorgeous.”
