3 stars I got this after listening to their latest, 2012's The Long Division, and I must say I was more impressed by Long Division. This album sounds kind of like angry adult oriented rock with non-linear song structures, elements of 70s soul and funk. Main alternating tones, often within a song, are the more soulful and more gritty, with rumbling guitar and bass. Vocals are on the high side and sometimes raspy. Production is DIY, instruments separated in the mix (the way I like it). Nothing terribly complicated or flashy, the band goes more after the mood. It's melodic alright, but if compared to The Long Division, songs on Narrow-Caster are generally heavier, two minutes shorter and yet less groovy and catchy. Usually with prog bands it is the other way around - the shorter songs are more immediate and longer ones take more time to sink in.
