3 stars This EP was released in Oct. 2010, some months later after band's full album "We Were Exploding Anyway" release. I really was curious, what the direction band will chose finaly in their newest release after they turned to electronic spacey sound from post -rock on their last album.

So, from very first sounds of this 7-songs EP the answer to my question is obvious: 65daysofstatic aren't post-rock band anymore. For good and bad.

I believe classic post-rock became quite boring and even obscure genre in year 2010, its potential was exploited in few years after the genre was born. Few great names,mostly sleeping on their old fame and some not very successful (and often even not very professional) clones - that's all what is post-rock at the end of the first decade.

It's not strange many bands are trying to find their new sound (or to find their future ,in other words). 65dos is one of them. With previous album they showed their new direction, with this EP they just confirmed their new choice.

Music there is in fact not too much different from "We Were Exploding Anyway" works. Heavily electronic-based sound with even more spacey atmosphere, interesting rhythm structure and in moments almost danceable compositions. Music isn't memorable, but when listening, it sounds really light and pleasant. Possibly, best description for the sound of this EP is mix of techno period Squarepusher and Ozric Tentacles. With quite pleasant, in moments melodic,even relaxed sound.

Unhappily, all compositions are similar to each other,and all release sounds more as small collection of band's new direction's demonstration. I am just curious to hear 65dos real new album - will they be able to find their own place in new waters?

3 stars Prior to listening to this EP, "Heavy Sky", I always found 65daysofstatic's music to be very boring and bland. It's most likely just because I'm a big fan of the progressive electronic genre and electronic music in general, but I thoroughly enjoy this EP.

"Heavy Sky" sounds like party, which is fine. I'm not really the party kind of guy, but I exercise frequently and need need something upbeat to listen to, and this fits the bill while also being at least mildly progressive. The music on this EP is heavily electronic, leaving almost no discernible playing of traditional rock instruments, which I feel is a sound that this band should definitely explore in the future. All of this EP wouldn't sound out of place at a night club, but some oddly placed beats and interesting developments within the music keep me from calling this run of the mill techno.

Very accessible by today's standards, definitely, though not a masterpiece and not 100% fitting as progressive rock but more as more progressive sounding modern electronic dance music.
