Album Notes
post harbor.

Heavily focused on instrumentation and song structure, Post Harbor's first full-length record, "Praenumbra," is a mirror of their live performances. Post Harbor’s genre-blurring mix of brooding intensity and melancholy vocals makes this an album that can't be ignored.

Recorded the winter of 2007.
Produced by S.J. Aguilar and Post Harbor.


"['praenumbra'] has been seeing some action ... for good reason. post harbor creates songs that begin with all the beauty of a Sigur Rós tune, only to dial up the percussion and angst, triggering reminders of Sunny Day Real Estate and all of their lo-fi bliss. ... These guys have been hitting up the clubs ... in hopes of spreading the word. The result has been unanimously positive, a sign that maybe these guys will soon get the attention they deserve."
~ KEXP, Seattle []

"Intensity of purpose and clarity of execution mark this impressive debut from the Pacific Northwest quartet post harbor. ... The songs on 'praenumbra' evolve measure by measure and the dynamic scheme changes song by song. ... [C]learly the members have a strong affinity because the individual parts speak with a single voice."
~ Performer Magazine []

"[post harbor] transcends all stereotypes ... [and] offers something completely new with 'praenumbra.' ... [I]t’s music for the sake of music, for the sake of mood, for the sake of an emotion that is difficult to put your finger on—but you know it when you feel it."
~ The Stonewailer []

"post harbor has resurrected noisy, technical rock and roll ... build[ing] songs with dramatic intensity and urgency—and, most importantly, knowing when to properly release the pressure. ... I haven't heard anything this good within the [genre] in ages. ... [T]hese guys are anything but wedded to a particular sound—except, of course, to that of good music."
~ Aiding & Abetting []

Really great album! I love it all the way through. I stumbled across the band on youtube at a time when I was tired of fast paced metal and wanted something relaxing but still rough, and well, this is it. When I saw they had a record out I didn´t hesitate once. My only complaint is that the album is to short:D I definetly want to hear more of this!

Thank you for really good music, and keep up the good work!


You Rock!
From start to finish, I loved this album. Even better live. I would highly recommend finding this band’s tour schedule and check them out. I was fortunate enough to see them perform live and that was enough to make me an instant fan. There are many layers to this band and their music that make them standout from the rest of the rock/emo world. I only wish there were a few more tracks on this album. I can’t wait to hear what they create next. The drums are my favorite part!

I love this album. It is everything that is good about post rock. I try to avoid the word emo due to all the negativity surrounding the word, however this adjective has not always been bad. In the beginning this word was used to describe a deeper more thoughtful movement of rock that stretched beyond the formulaic monotany of radio rock. It was founded by bands such as the appleseed cast, mineral, and sunny day realestate just to name a few. It focused on instrumentation and balanced delicate melody with abrasive crunch. Post Harbor is where emo should have gone. I am so happy with this album.
