SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Australian majestic musician Plini has released so far a trilogy of EPs, being 'Sweet Nothings', launched in 2013, the second one of those. For those who don't know, this young man has been creating extraordinary music in this decade, but all of them spread in singles or EPs, not in full-length albums yet, something I hope he consider in the near future because I am sure that his quality and creativity will surprise us with a memorable album.

Meanwhile, it is possible to enjoy his music in the diverse online platforms such as bandcamp, where I particularly listen to his releases. Plini composes and practically plays everything here, though there are a couple of guitar players as guest musicians, along a piano guy on the final track. Well, Sweet Nothings has four compositions that make a total time of 16 minutes. It starts with 'Opening', whose jazzy flavor appears since the first seconds, however, later when that virtuoso guitar enters it adds a djent sound for a brief moment. The song prevails in that jazzy realm, delighting me a lot.

With 'Tarred & Feathered' Plini shows off again his amazing skills as composer and performer; the music has now a tendency to post-rock but also a bit of djent lives there as well. Besides guitars, which are evidently the main element, here I like a lot the atmosphere created by keyboards, which is more evident after 2 minutes where the song becomes more emotional. 'Away' starts with a lot of technique and string-complexity, again post-rock meets djent but in this track the guitar is played faster and with endless notes, so I think the best way to describe it would be math rock.

The final song is 'Sweet Nothings' which is another great composition. The melody is great, progressive jazz with some post rock hints, a constant piano and wonderful guitar riffs. It has several time changes, and after three minutes it becomes heavier, more in the metal vein. So it is a challenging composition that once again let us know about the fascinating skills of Plini, a musician that has kept me mesmerized in the last couple of weeks.

Now don't pay attention to my rating, because as a reviewer I have my "own rules" which don't allow me to rate releases under 20 minutes with more than 2 stars, unless it is the EP or single of my life.

Enjoy it!
