Limited to only 233 total pieces (58 on transparent blue w/ black smoke vinyl, and 175 on opaque yellow vinyl), this is the one and only pressing that will ever exist of this release. In fact, this one-time pressing sums of the entirety of physical releases for "The Quiet Hour!"

The Quiet Hour is the sophomore release from the Boston-based technical post-rock band Sparhawks. Sadly, it also serves as their swan song, and because of this fact, this vinyl pressing will be a one-and-done scenario. This simply will not be re-pressed!
With the technical prowess of a softer-edged And So I Watch You From Afar or perhaps more akin to This Town Needs Guns without a vocalist, Sparhawks have found a wonderful little niche within the post rock community - one that blends the skill of their instruments along with the quiet/loud ebbing and flowing of a usual post rock output. After a handful of singles & EPs and the much-applauded debut effort The Cabin, Sparhawks recorded this long player over two sessions at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio and it was mastered for both digital and vinyl by Dave @ Lucky Lacquers.

Nothing's blend of shoegaze stand's out as it is way more than just MBV and Slowdive worship. Their sound owes as much to grunge and metal. The shimmering guitars, subdued vocals and gorgeous melodies really dominate. Frenchie
