Beautiful Scarlet
2 stars So ambient.

It's Pissing Don opens with percussion and is joined shortly by chill keyboards and bass. This song is very much so about building an atmosphere. There are some stops that ultimately return to the same mellow soundscape albeit seen through the eyes of different instrument sets. The song ends with tinkling, maybe water, maybe pee?

Little Machines opens with acoustic guitar and soft vocals. At around 3:30 some synths play lead which is probably the highlight of the EP for me.

M.O.D.A.R strikes me as really annoying, it's pretty much just five minutes of synth pad plus extremely distorted snare (you'll hear it and know what sound I'm talking about).

Keeny Woka Phoola is a brief track with a bit of vocals towards the end that start glitching out.

Earth Song With One Sugar opens with a staccato synth providing rhythm while other instruments slowly develop the song. At around 2:30 a full set of instruments join hands. This subsides pretty soon and the electronic ambient returns. The last minute has an argument added on plus "munchkin voices". Actually really annoying to me because the track till this point has done nothing to earn anything odd like this.

Overall this is a somewhat unpleasant release in my opinion due to all the ambient spacey moments and some of the moments of Earth Song With Sugar/MODAR are straight up agitating enough to move this down to 2* territory. One should come expecting a really strong post rock/electronic influence.

Canterbury Sound Score 2/5

Beautiful Scarlet | 2/5 |
