4 stars Just a two track recording but these Swedes can do no wrong which is why I have all three of their releases even one as short as this. The two tracks both "rock" pretty hard with bass and drums creating an uptempo groove while spacey synths and guitars play over the groove.

"Space Normal Speed" is spacey to start as the bass joins in then the drums and guitar soon after. A pretty good uptempo groove here as the spacey sounds also continue. Catchy stuff. The guitar is crying out after 2 minutes but it eventually backs off. Some grinding guitar before 4 minutes. It's hard not to bounce around to this stuff. The guitar is crying out again before 6 minutes as the song starts to wind down.

"Seabass" opens with a heavy groove with growly sounds over top. This is nastier sounding than the previous song but a similar tempo. I like how we get pretty much drums only as it settles right down before 2 minutes but picked guitar and bass help out quickly then the guitar starts to slowly solo. We get vocals which is excellent just before 3 minutes. It turns heavier 4 minutes in and the vocals get louder. He steps aside at 4 1/2 minutes as instrumentally they are just killing it here. It settles back late to a spacey ending.

Seemed silly getting such a short recording but as I said this is a band that I seem to connect with and they haven't let me down yet. One of the best new Space Rock bands out there.
