4 stars East of the Wall is side project band that formed out of the ashes of The Postman Syndrome but instead of taking the direction of their predecessor, they took a totally different one and it is demonstrated through their debut EP. In simple words East of the Wall's music takes the energy of The Postman Syndrome and fuses it with intensive post rock melodies.

This EP consists of only 4 untitled songs that have a unique atmosphere and sound. While at first glance it might all seem like jazz oriented post rock/math rock guitar sound but deep inside the songs, like in II you'll find a heavier sound because of Brett Bamberger's distorted bass effect that brings Anekdoten to mind, and also not to be missed is Mike Somers incredible drumming. The third song (III) features a more experimental sound, using different strange effects and even featuring an acoustic guitar. The last song (IV) features an even heavier sound; featuring again the distorted bass that once again brings Anekdoten to mind but this time, sounds more similar to bands like Russian Circles and even Red Sparowes.

In overall this debut EP is great. East of the Wall has shown that it has a bright future ahead of them. Great quality and great music, East of the Wall is not to be missed.
