2 stars Nice Report!

Once again I took advantage of the internet facilities and downloaded this free EP, from a band previously unknown to me, but whose name caught my attention. They are The Evpatoria Report, a post-rock band from Switzerland that started the project almost ten years ago. Here we can notice that this musical genre has reached places that are not known for having these kinds of bands, but that is a proof of post-rock success.

So in 2003 they released their first EP, entitled "The Evpatoria Report" in which we can have a slice of their music, and a glimpse of their talent. This EP can be downloaded from their website, so as I did, I invite you to do it. With two songs and a total time of sixteen minutes, here you will surely have a good time.

"Naptalan" is a seven-minute track that starts slowly and little by little progresses. Guitars first, then drums and bass together began to create a strong track. The part where keyboards appear adds a new atmosphere and direction to the song. After four minutes there is another change with a kind of symphonic sound (due to keyboards), that opens the gates to the final explosion, and final part of the track. It is the heaviest sound, the softness is gone and now the music is emotional and explosive. You will like it.

"Voskhod Project" almost reaches the ten minutes, and it is my favourite out of these two tracks. It starts slow (once again), the structure and formula is practically the same, the difference here is the use of new elements such as violin and the diverse figures every 4/4 . The song may be repetitive for a couple of minutes, but later it turns heavier and gets the listener's attention. But well, it slows down and changes the mood and the atmosphere, now it has a mellow, nostalgic and beautiful sound, here is when the violin enters and gives new colors to the track. The song makes some other changes in time and tempo, but keeps the same structure. Pretty cool track!

My introduction of the band left me with a nice taste, so now I want to hear more of them. These two songs together make easily to the three-star rating, however, in my rating style I don't usually give more than two stars to less than 20 minutes albums.

Enjoy it!
