Tracks like “Rise On” would feel appropriate on the soundtrack for a summertime movie about unrequited love. “Flooding River” seems to harbor a sense of patient earnesty, as if one were waiting for an answer to a heart-wrenching question. But it is perhaps “November Song” which stands out as most fascinating; its use of electronic, almost robotic-sounding percussion seems to give the track a hidden level of emotional complexity that feels a bit too obvious in the other songs. The emotional consistency felt on this EP is perhaps its best and worst quality; a lack of change in pacing and mood makes the album feel less like an attention-demanding journey and more like fodder for dreams. All in all, The Longed-For Season might not be the most memorable of post-rock releases, but it might strike a chord if the events in your life match up with the sentiments embedded within it.
