With his third full-length album “Adaptation”, Deer Park Ranger continues to evolve his brand of post-rock and deliver his most mature and sophisticated record to date. This album showcases his cinematic songwriting, in which each song seems to tell a story with the listener clinging to each twist and turn of the plot. Humphrey takes a more patient approach on this release, which gives his songs the space and time to build and cascade into their inevitable chaotic crescendos, and come down to their serene afterglows.
Each tense moment seems to have a blissfully calm counterpart giving the listener a gratifying and balanced experience. His use of layers creates dense textures that allow you to uncover more with each listen and will make you want to come back again and again. From start to finish, this album takes you on a journey that you won’t forget.
