1 stars I will keep this brief just like the EP.

The sound is unexpected for a prog band and it did not really hook me in. I was not impressed at all with any of the tracks.

1. Meant For You is a Beach Boys cover with a very pseudo punk sound. Ramones or Clash come to mind with math rock estranged rhythms. Not really my taste at all.

2. Koka Kola is an interesting homage to the wonderful life adding drink. A cover from clash and it sounds like it but not as good as the punk progenitors.

3. Pixies cover version of Tame is ok. Perhaps the best track on this EP. Very strong bass line, weird rhythms, short n sweet like the other tracks.

4. Weezer's Blast Off is given some rather strange treatment here. Sliding guitar played passionately, heavy sound, with Beach Boys meets Ramones type vocalisations, quirky mid section with vocaphone style guitar. It slows at the end and has spaced out guitar twiddles, indescribable atmosphere, and a bit trippy.

5. The Polaris cover of Hey Sandy ends the EP. Jangly guitar, vocals with harmonies, punk sound, same as the others.

Best thing about this is its a short EP. I did not take to this punked out crashing brand of music. In summary, I did not like this but I can see why some will. It is not my style of music and I cannot rate higher than a 1 star as I would never bother listening to this a second time. The production is so thin and its too raw to give credit to. The musicianship is nothing special nor are the vocals. The band perhaps are finding their way but this is not a great way to be introduced to them.
