2 stars It seems that the two middle-aged men from Durham were producing music like passionate teenagers throughout 2013.And that's because during the recordings of ''Crash course for dessert'' plenty of tracks were left out, not fitting with the concept.These leftovers were made available by the duo in April 2014.Needless to say this was anoter free downloadable bandcamp release by Salander.

This collection of tracks carrying the title ''Don't worry I'm not going to hurt you'' can be split in two particular styles.The one is close to the likes of Steve Hogarth-era MARILLION or COSMOGRAF, featuring synthetic soundscapes, downtempo electric textures and expressive voices, often delivered via slight distortions, definitely following a modern Neo Prog style, where accesible songwriting has found some space among the emotional guitar solos, the deep lyricism and the heavy, pounding grooves ala PORCUPINE TREE.The most obvious influence from the 70's appears to be PINK FLOYD, the combination of layered keyboards, melancholic atmospheres and sensitive, electric moves is the best proof for this.Not much of a personal music guide, but these pieces contain some pleasant moments.A few tracks though, and here comes the other side of Salander, follows a Pop Rock style, which I personally dislike.Tracks like ''Dropping rhe catch'' or ''Connections'', based on acoustic textures, irritating vocals and featuring some discreet rural climates are characterized by questionable songwriting and a rather pale, poppy sound with not much to offer to a Prog listener.On the other hand the guys seem to have established a semi-original musical background, when they propose their soft electric touches with some cool Electronic ambiences.

So, this review shoudn't be taken seriously, as this is a bunch of leftovers, which Salander brought to light for free.What should be taken seriously is the band's general style, which bursts some modern Neo Prog mixed with old FLOYD-ian echoes.A band to keep an eye on...2.5 stars.
