The beginning of this song suggests something along the lines of “Sounds Of Silence” coming on. The build-up is subtle, but with Cranberries-esque vocals, it’s there, and you can tell something is coming. 1:53 in, the drums cement things. It’s like that point in Drake’s “We’ll Be Fine” when he says “well fuck, let’s get it then.” There’s no turning back from a moment like that in a song. By two minutes in, you’ve got a wall of vocals and handclaps, and it’s clear that this is no “Sounds Of Silence.” It’s better that way.

Heard this one on the Paper Garden Mixed Greens tape, which you can listen to/download here. “This Fall” is off of Big Tree’s This New Year, out now. More about them here.
