August and After-Embers

August and After, the acoustic duo who brought you The Orchard have followed that up with their debut full length release, Embers.  August and After provide some truly wonderful, harmonic and atmospheric throughout what is a truly great record.

Waltz For Marie is a particularly inspired track featuring some great guest vocals as well as the instrumental arrangement being absolutely superb.  Another highlight of the record is the haunting Gleam Behind the Ghosts, full of epic vocals and wonderful understated guitars.  The tone is raised at times on tracks like Getaway, while Evergreen and Salamander brings Embersto a fantastic conclusion.
