4 stars The final EP from one of perhaps the last ever British Canterbury scene bands.

It is a great shame that not more bands takes up the baton laid down by the likes of Caravan, Gilgamesh, Soft Machine and Robert Wyatt. Instead, we get a lot of new bands playing either symph prog or female vocalist fronted bands playing a mix of AOR and neo-prog. That market is over crowded in my view. Why not follow in Antique Seeking Nuns footsteps ?

With song titles like The Bearded Bag Lady, you know you are in for something weird. The music on this far too short EP is a mix of Canterbury and post rock. It is full of small details wrapped up in quirky great melodies. The vocals are great. The musicians does a brilliant job too. The music is both guitar based and full of quirky tangents too. There is a lot of great ideas here and they all comes of brilliantly.

I would unashamed brand Antique Seeking Nuns as one of the best and biggest secrets in the British music scene. Their three EPs is most definate worth going for, whatever the costs (hint, hint..... an email to the band Sanguine Hum, see interview, will probably do).

Great stuff !

4 stars
