Envy - Free Sampler/Show Review

Envy is a band from Tokyo Japan that play a combination of post hardcore and post rock. They've always managed to balance the two genres and no other band blends screaming and spoken word over post rock so well. I mentioned in the last post that I just saw these guys a couple of hours ago and words seem to fail me at this point when trying to convey how visceral, genuine and powerful their performance was (trust me those words FAIL.) It was my first time seeing Envy and they were AMAZING. They're now one of those bands that I HAVE to see whenever they're in town, they gave the type of performance and experience you wish you could keep with you forever in full detail. Temporary Residence Limited puts out their releases here in the states and they also offer a free song to sample from every one of their releases. Once again I've compiled them all into one convenient sampler for you to download after the video of "Worn heels and the hands we hold" from their new album "Recitation" which is out now. Be sure to catch them on tour at one of their remaining US dates which also includes Trash Talk as an opening band;
