Quote:
Well worth the wait, Monument's much buzzed about debut full-length fulfills the potential that the quartet's 2009 3 Song 7" hinted at and finds its songwriting prowess growing by leaps and bounds. Goes Canoeing isn't so much a melding of styles but rather the culmination of a vast array of influences, not to mention years of members playing in bands such as The Summer We Went West, Dawntreader and The Tasty Habits. From, math-y emo, post-punk, noise-pop, grungy 90's indie rock and even the Dischord-styled hardcore of the band's D.C. home, Goes Canoeing is as loose and raw as it is infectious and intricately layered. Recorded by Algernon Cadwallader's Joe Reinhart, these 10 songs are bursting with acrobatic guitars, spirited gang vocals and uncommonly catchy melodies, all bolstered by Monument's creativity and undeniable enthusiasm. The first great, essential release of 2011.

Last minute contender for AOTY. Seriously.

Had this on the computer for a week or so, still haven't listened, will definitely do so now.
As an aside, can't really contend for AOTY since it's a 2011 release.

I can't wait to listen to this, always been a big fan of Monument since their first demo. 2010 has been a good year for this type of music between this release, Snowing and Arrows to name a few.
