Review by Rivertree
3 stars 2012 saw two new mini EP's recorded by Australian THE OVALS ... heaven knows why it turned out in this way ... but the songs are worthwhile in any case, and that counts. Besides a pervasive 70's psychedelia flavour another similiarity is to state - all the tracks are starting off relatively standard song oriented, but sooner or later turn into an instrumental part featuring some improv approach, which finally obsesses me completely.

The title track is a nice one, including expressive vocal parts and interesting drum work, this reminds me of fellow countrymen Alithia in some way. The more extended Nobody follows as the highlight here - a perfect piece, initiated by sampled spoken words. Exactly when arriving the point of no return they are drifting into an intriguing jam passage with spacey synths and celestial guitar. Oh, did I mention, that there is another EP in place too? Just try to find their bandcamp page and enjoy!
