The Occasion

The wonderful thing about good music is it has the power to shed light, it has the power to convince. Only a few times has a record caputured my state of mind as well as The Occasion's self-titled 2003 release. The Occasion has a knack for songcraft in a style which brings to mind early Genesis, but with the moodiness of some of today's post rock elements. It's a combination that is all together stimualting. Indeed they are from N.Y.C but this band needs to be set apart from their other post-punk citymates because they caputre the vastness of this whole country in a calm sometimes dark manner.
