3 stars First of all, why is this the first review of this band and this free download EP in PA ? That is a mystery and I will explain why.

Sky Picnic plays a very accessible form of Psychedelic/Space Rock on this EP. It is a bohemian laid back type of music with a lot of dreamy spacy post rock, shoegaze, kraut and pop/rock influences. They are from New York and that explains the student/college rock sound. The music is dominated by Leah Cinnamon's (female) vocals. Naive and somewhat thin vocals which suits this music like a hand in a good glove. Her vocals is great and sometimes breaks into remarkable great too. She is supported by some half acoustic and electric guitars with bass and drums in the background. All of this is very good.

The music is dreamy and spacy. Very relaxing music. But on the opening track The Unknown Regions, the band goes into a standard rock terrain with a proper chorus-verse-chorus song structure. This song is great and the best on this ep. The rest of the ep is much more experimental and Krautrock like. But always interesting and never boring.

This ep, a free download, is a very good ep and showcases a band well worth keeping an eagle eye on. Kraut, post rock and psychedelic/space rock fans will find this ep very agreeable indeed.

3.5 stars
