Film School is the second album of the band of the same name, and also my first exposure to the group. Initially being captivated by their modern shoe-gaze feel, new-gaze if you will, and rough around the edge riffs and all too often dreamy vocals along with several post-rock elements, I instantly fell in love with the band and this album. I think that spin(dot)com put it best:

"Quiet but intense, subtle but unrestrained, the songs of Film School possess, musically speaking, more balls than Sigur Ros and less eccentricity than Moby. It's like a seamless score to your dreams. Or hallucinations"

Give it a spin, then go ahead and put it on repeat.
