Splitting the difference between postrock and ambient metal, Red Sparowes' tired, portenteous seltzer-soaks barely register, and Made Out of Babies routinely knit delightful, hard-rock garrotes using the classic quiet-to-loud form. Battle of Mice is a teamup of the former's axeman/keyboardist and the latter's valkyrie howler, among others. "The Lamb and the Labrador" will allow anyone up late at night wondering What if Evanescence's Amy Lee fronted Godspeed You Black Emperor? to return to a regular sleep schedule. You're welcome.
