Playing like a brighter, happier Mogwai, Everywhere and Right Here continues the Six Parts Seven's exploration of spacey instrumentals, crescendos of mood and emotion, and epic indie rock. "What You Love You Must Love Now" is as poignant as anything by the great instrumental bands Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Sonna, but is marked by a more pronounced Eno influence. Whereas Godspeed songs command attention, Six Parts Seven pieces threaten to disappear into the ether. Being from Ohio, the band has a relatively close proximity to the Chicago post-rock scene, but they don't exactly fit into it. Six Parts Seven is looser and less structured than a band like Tortoise. "Saving Words for Making Sense" is a warm combination of guitar arrangements; sweetly melancholy and decidedly earthbound. Any fan of Sigur Ros would openly embrace the liquid textures and introspection of Everywhere and Right Here.
