Review by Guldbamsen
3 stars So this is my second taste of Pseudo/Sentai, and while I was very keen on their latest EP - this new single may prove to be even more seductive to these ears(even if it is released as a solo mission by band member Blue). Just remember that 'these ears' have a weakness for electronic music - music that surfs and rides fluidly over- tops this beautiful surge of robotic power. Sure, you often get the exact opposite in the ambient uncouth industrial corners of the genre, but with this track, Making a Hole in the Center of the First Outside Planet, you get an overpowering feeling of being slingshot right into the very title of the track with buzzing fire thrusters and a nearby church organist, who's finally gone completely fishing, circling round in small neat, and yet blurry disturbing sound patterns.

Sounds like an engaging, if not slightly deranged electronic seaman ditty - y'know the ones you hear way out west in the blue deserts, where folks say AYE and GUVNOR?................. - in fact all of this track oozes a maritime feel, even if we're setting off for the first outside planet. I guess we're sailing after all eh? Gotta love those beautiful golden sun sails shimmering in the deep blackness of space. If I close my eyes, I can almost feel those exact images riding alongside this highly shimmering sailor tune. In a matter of 3 minutes 18 seconds you get all of this handed over to you merely through the sounds of a synth and a mouth. Great partnership, and I for one am looking very much forward to hear what these two cats can come up with in the future, especially when they pair up with the rest of the band who additionally have both musical skills and mouths to boot.

Coupled together with the eclectic and at times avantguardistic Indie rock of this band, this new little experiment could be something quite astonishing. I am not sure I want to award 4 stars to a single track, but rest assured I dig the heel out of it. Really really dig the heel out of it baby....

3 stars It's always hard making a judgement call on the worth of something when there is only one song, and that song in itself is less than four minutes long. But, there is definitely something going on here, as the electronic keyboards drive into the brain and there are definitely some subtleties that make it standout. It is these additional layers that make it stand out more than many solo keyboard pieces I have come across although in many ways it has more in common with art rock than prog. This is marked as being by the band it is actually a solo effort by keyboard player Greg Murphy, and is quite different to the rest of the band's material. This is available as a free download from bandcamp.

2 stars This is the last single Pseudo/Sentai released in 2012, its title is "Making a Hole in the Center of the First Outside planet" and contains that self-titled song which lasts only three minutes. I like this song a lot, the atmosphere is tense, like for a horror movie and a dark story to tell to your friends, so be careful, keep your view on the road and watch your steps, because the first wrong move you do might be disastrous. That's how I felt while listening to this solo instrumental keyboard driven song by Greg Murphy, one of the two members of this band.

Though I like the track a lot, I was used to listen to their voices, so it was strange not to have them here, however, this song is really enjoyable and easy to dig and repeat again and again. Now I am looking forward to review their full-length albums. My rating will be two stars, but it does not matter, you just have to listen to their music, which is good and recommendable.

Enjoy it!
