3 stars 'Galápagos' - Jung People (6/10)

With Jung People having since expanded this EP into a full-length debut, 'Galápagos' seems a little obsolete in hindsight. 'Too Late To Die Young' was a very good post-rock record, and most definitely put this band on the radar for me. This EP was released a few months before the record, and seeing as all of the tracks would later be reprised on the debut, this is more of a sampler now than anything else. In any case, 'Galápagos' is a quite good release from this band, and would be a nice sign of good things to come.

Jung People's sound is quite aggressive for post-rock, and a great thing about the band is that they produce their music 'live off the floor', meaning that what you're hearing is a real performance, rather than something meticulously triggered and refined. Three of the songs from the debut are here. 'Jaws' was one of the more memorable tracks, and has a melodic riff that helps balance out the near-punkish sound they make here. 'This Is Indian Land' is a longer piece, but just as heavy, although the noisy vibe of it can be a bit much. The final track and title piece of the EP begins with an annoying loop of dialogue about sharks, then closes off the record with a comparatively mellow feeling. 'Jaws' is the only song here that is really excellent, but the others have enough substance to them to be worth a listen.

'Galápagos' is a short but representative slice of what Jung People are all about; organic and heavy song-based post-rock. I would tend to recommend the full-length any day over this, but for someone who does not have the patience to blindly go into a full-length, this EP might come in handy.
