3 stars After the astounding Ashes Against The Grain I would greet any sign of life from Agalloch with fervent enthusiasm. In order to keep this kind of fan radicalism under control, Agalloch released this pleasant little EP filled with acoustic winter night music.

It's named The White and that fits the music just fine. Short melancholic acoustic guitar pieces with touches of electric guitar and subtle tricks out of multiple effect devices dominate this instrumental album. For specialists, the music here will have a strong Ulver ring to it, at least to the Ulver incarnation as it can be heard on the acoustic Nordic folk album Kveldssanger.

Halfway through this shorth EP, the quality of the pieces start to diminish a bit, but it if this EP gives any hint of the new sounds the band might be integrating in the future, I'll be even more eager for a new full length then I already was after Ashes Against The Grain.
