Review by TCat
4 stars I cannot compare this EP with any of the bands other recordings because, quite honestly, this is the only recording of theirs that I have heard. But I must say that I was quite impressed even from the first listen. Post rock is definitely the correct subgenre for this music. There are definite leanings and inspiration from both Slint and Tortoise. What you won't hear is much to compare is with Explosions in the Sky or Red Sparrowes . In the first track the build ups are quick, the tempo changes and dynamic changes are much more often than either of those bands and sometimes they are even instant with no warning or build up. I like this because the song does not wear out it's welcome and stays interesting throughout it's 11+ minutes of playtime. There are also vocals in the first track. The vocals are a little harsh, but I think they fit the music well and don't seem out of place. The musicianship is excellent. The 2nd track is all instrumental with the percussion being the focus that carries the same basic rhythm throughout with some jazzy brass weaving throughout the beat and the bass. Very Tortoise- like to me, but they handle the style very well. The last track has a nice guitar hook and some interesting and tricky percussion. There are vocals in this track also, though they start out a little more subdued until things start getting a little more dramatic. But I never did find the vocals going overboard obnoxious for very long. Again, the dissonant vocals never seem out of place. Again in this track, there are sudden dynamic and tempo changes, but they are a little more predictable here because they almost follow a chorus/verse format.....not quite, but almost. Anyway, from this little taste of the band, I definitely think it is worth checking out their other work (whenever I get the chance). Excellent addition to any post rock lover's library mostly because they challenge the subgenre's usual formulas.
