AllMusic Review by

With IN THE NERVOUS LIGHTS OF COINCIDENCE, its 2008 debut on the Torque label, the Vancouver-based post-hardcore act Jakartah presents a set of urgent indie-rock. Revealing a tendency towards prog-like time changes and heavy riffing, the Canadian trio’s songs are as challenging as they are compelling, as evinced on the dynamic “Hawaii Burns at Sunrise.”
