One of the year’s best albums…and it’s about damn time. Star Tribune

Some albums just feel like the end of summer, or the final rays of light in a sunset—a settling-in process that sounds both comforting and forlorn. The Cracks That Built The Walls, the second album from Midwest band Communist Daughter, captures that pleasingly melancholy mood, as though the music were mourning the end of a long day, while still welcoming the coming quiet. A.V. Club

First Avenue hosts Communist Daughter’s Record Release Show with Alpha Consumer, Fraea, and Catbath on Friday, November 11, 2016.
