Review by Rivertree
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions
4 stars This EP is a collection of leftovers from their 'Octopus' sessions during 2008/2009. The four tracks are completely improvised, and unique as they were recorded. Wow, Sel Balamir performs magic here - the guitar often sounds multi-layered. And so they do not need an additional keyboards/synthesizer player. A revelation for every space rock fan, well ... except you are keen on getting in touch with some heavy Hawkwind related stuff throughout.

Which means this is more of a trippy floating behaviour, and provided with much empathy including sensitive drum and bass work. However, we have an exception of course - while closing the first song Executive the band runs into a nervous breakdown The following The Chace shows some post rock impressions where the title track and the closing Solaris can be rated as cosmic trips per se.

Recorded in the night time this may be attempts in order to chill out in between. All three musicians play very relaxed, mostly. As stated before Sel Balamir is able to offer much variety, this is not boring at all, tension-filled to the contrary. I'm still not convinced about 'Octopus' at this moment - but 'Fractal' at least is a successful giveaway comprising more than 20 minutes of fine space rock - check it out!

Review by Any Colour You Like
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars British psych-rockers Amplifier are one of the most promising artists emerging in the modern experimental rock scene. Their mixture of space rock and psychedelic meanderings evoke images of any manner of fellow British contemporaries including Oceansize, Porcupine Tree, Ozric Tentacles and Radiohead.

Fractal EP consists of four extended improvised tracks that remained after the production of their previous album, Octopus. The tracks have that essential quality of improvisation - fluidity. They traverse naturally from effects-drenched jams into seemingly more coherent and quasi-structured compositions. As natural with improvisation, it can get a little bit confused, but the beauty of Fractal, is that such psychedelic meanderings really do lend themselves to pure improvisation. After all; set the delay pedal to a long delay, and all of a sudden, you're Pink Floyd. The band play well off each other, hitting chaotic cues with remarkable clarity, progressing through musical sections with relative ease. Of all the movements, 'The Chase' comes across as the most cohesive composition, even erring on the side of post rock, with relaxed instrumentation and a charming atmosphere. There's no excessive amount sonic saturation here that may deter those usually wary of improvised music. And while Fractal is hardly going to be as 'tight' as one might expect from such an artist, it seems to be a competent late night chill out soundtrack, without the elevator-muzak implications.

In terms of what I was expecting from this release, the cohesiveness and pleasant nature of the music was a surprise. It's not brilliant, it's a little one-paced and doesn't really push the listener beyond a causal "oh, that was a nice percussion fill" or quiet appreciation. Fractal appears to be a scaffolding. The external shape is there, some of the plastering is taking shape, but the building still needs to be constructed.
