1 stars Ten years have passed since the last Gastr del Sol review was posted in this site. Maybe the name still is unknown to so many people and only recognized within the post-rock realm, maybe it is because the project vanished almost twenty years ago, but well, it is important to know Jim O'rourke participated here. The music of this project has a blend of post-rock, electronic and experimental music. If you are going to listen to them, please go and dig their Upgrade & Afterlife or the Camofleur albums.

But most important, please avoid listening to this EP. I did it because I found it with a bargain price so I didn't hesitate and bought it, however, the few times I've tried to dig it I've finished with a "wtf" as reaction. Maybe I am not that experimental, I don't know, but the 17 minutes of THE HARP FACTORY ON LAKE STREET are senseless and worthless. There are so many pauses, a forgettable use of synth that works as background and an strange use of brass instruments, all lead to nowhere, there are no paths to follow so you can lose the interest in any moment.

It's been a long time since I published my last 1-star review. Unfortunately, this EP deserves it.
