Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars This was ZECHS MARQUISE very first recording a Live EP from 2006. It comes across as being an improv as the tracks blend into each other here in this all instrumental affair. We get two guitarists, a bassist, drummer and synths/keys player. And as I mentioned in my review of their latest "Getting Paid" there are a couple of brothers here of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez(THE MARS VOLTA) which is pretty cool. The music here sounds nothing like THE MARS VOLTA by the way. I didn't really enjoy this nearly as much as "Getting Paid" but it's worth checking out in my opinion. I'm guessing they divided this 34:26 EP into four parts just for convenience for the listener.

"Part I" opens with barley audible sounds and it's either turn it up then turn it down gradually as it slowly builds or strain your ears. It's experimental.

"Part II" is the longest at over 12 minutes. A catchy rhythm of guitar, bass and drums as a second guitar comes in over top. It stays repetitive until that rhythm disappears after 5 minutes as the focus turns towards the guitar as bass and piano help out. The guitar starts to get more aggressive after 9 minutes, especially before 10 minutes. I like this. It starts to wind down until all that's left is bass.

"Part III" continues with that bass but soon the organ comes in over top along with guitar and drums. The guitar again becomes more of the focus but the organ does continue. It calms right down before 3 1/2 minutes as the bass continues with faint guitar only. Drums are back but distant. That familiar bass line that started towards the end of the previous section ends before 6 minutes. It's still there but a different melody. The guitar starts to light it up after 7 minutes.

"Part IV" continues from the previous section but the organ joins in but it will step aside quickly as the guitar takes the spotlight. Some keys before 2 minutes then it starts to calm right down before 3 minutes to an experimental section right to the end as we get atmosphere, synths and electronics I believe. Some organ floats in as well.

A good album but nothing close to being essential in my opinion.
