Sansyou, an instrumental prog-shoegaze surf guitar trio from Washington, build intricate double lead guitar compositions on their debut album The Glistening One. It's an exploration of dreamy dexterity with the drummer acting as a third front man. It's a precarious proposition to have three men acting as the main force, but they have found a middle ground to keep the music from falling apart. Lead single Let It Expand does what it says on the tin, stacking layers upon layers of guitar and call-and-response percussion to create a greater whole.

When done right instrumental music can create full-fledged stories without using actual words. The airy Level Flight takes listeners on a plane trip and the brooding Rise of a Fall speaks of impending doom. Title track The Glistening One is a 101 in modern post-rock by way of King Crimson and Can. Sansyou put subtlety above all else. They have made an album that flows like one long composition. Too bad it's all over after 35 minutes.
