Multiple is the sixth full length record by the prolific maximalists known as LITE. Over the years, the Japanese quartet has established itself as one of the most influential groups across a host of subgenres. Though usually referred to by touchstones such as "math-rock" or "post-rock," LITE has developed an uncanny ability to fuse their influences into their own unmistakable dialect that defies generic genre classification. This album gives math-rock a push towards an accessible sound in some places, but remains dynamic and interesting all the way through. The lighter sound excels through most of this album, the music is inventive, each track has its own personality, and the music never seems to get stagnant. The band follows in the footsteps of its contemporaries like "Tortoise" but, for the most part, veers away from too much experimentation, keeping the sound more accessible and melodic for the masses, but also keeping things innovative for the people that love the more complex side of things. Excellent album.
