Instrumental six-piece Hour has been teasing singles from their sophomore album, Anemone Red, and although the album is officially out November 2nd via Lily Tapes and Discs, you can stream it now on Various Small Flames. The subdued strings arrangement evokes a sense of missing, brushing the blank silhouette where someone should be. The record works best when played all at once, without pause, preferably while staring wistfully across an autumnal scene.

Hour plays its release show for Anemone Red at Beacon in West Philly on Thursday, November 8th. Tickets and more information can be found here.
