3 stars This fifteen minute long five track EP captures Pseudo/Sentai as a quartet, and is very different indeed from Greg's solo project. This is experimental alt rock that is all over the place, bringing in elements from punk and electronic as well as prog, and with some songs under two minutes in length they certainly don't fit the normal view of many as to what prog is and what is should be. It is a fresh sound, and feels very much like a young sound, with an attitude of "this is who we are and if you don't like it, tough!" about it. The vocals can be gentle and harmonious and at other times are very much in your face and aggressive. There are acoustic guitars and electric, piano and eighties synths, it is really is a total mix of sounds and styles in a very short period of time.

It can be quite hard to understand what they are trying to achieve, but what you hear is what you get; this isn't music that you have to concentrate on to get inside, it is there in your face. The longest song, "Keeper of the Stars", is also their best as it gets them enough room to stretch out and somehow bring in Indian style noodlings with The Offspring and gentle harmonies and fuzzed distorted guitars with indie pop sensibilities. Intriguing. Available from Bandcamp
