This is pretty momentous for the awesome, but the unheralded band in a sea of commercials featuring pop stars and pop culture icons. Each Superbowl ad spot reportedly cost s 5.5 million dollars per minute or air time. This Will Destroy You released a brand new album on January 11th, New Others Part One.

San Antonio post rockers Bright Like The Sun is streaming their sophomore self titled album, out now via Sun Sea Sky Productions below. Produced by This Will Destroy You‘s Alex Bhore, Bright Like The Sun create post-rock music with nuance from powerful washes of guitars and the band’s haunting use of vocals as another instrumental layer to the inclusion of instruments not commonly associated with the genre. Their music is epic, dissolving the lines between powerful and meditative, creating something that’s both brains and brawn.
Bright Like The Sun tracklist:
01: White Lights
02: Le Vent Sil
03: Screams of Patient Leaves
04: Smile Wide and Look Alive
05: An Awoken Dream on Broadway
