3 stars I have to admit I am not feeling entirely home in the soundscape this band is occupying on this EP. This is the debut EP from Merkabah and it is also a free download. According to the band, it is not particular representative for the band anno 2011.

The music is best described as psychedelic/space Rock with a modern sound and a very post- rock feel over it. It would call it a mix of post rock and psychedelic/space Rock. Everything here is instrumental and mainly bass driven with a generous helping hand of a twaang guitar sound.

If you spend your day standing upright and studying your shoes...... In short, being generally a shy and introverted person, this EP may be your soundtrack though. The music is very atmospheric and based on creating a mood. Not a type of EP which should be downloaded by suicidal persons though (please, please doctor....... don't read this review). But there are subtle and very effective melody lines throughout these twenty eight minutes. It is also some fully blast post rock ending to this EP. That makes me wonder what this band is doing in the Psychedelic/Space Rock genre and that they may find their real home in the Post Rock genre. In short; this is not the traditional Psychedelic/Space Rock genre EP.

Yes, I am wobbling around in this review like a drunk man........ which I am not. I am not sure if this is a decent or a good EP though. The quality...... well, I am actually pretty fond of this EP and would give it three stars. My heart has overruled my head for the second time tonight in reviews and I wonder why I bother maintaining a brain after all. In short # 2; if Post Rock is your thing, this is a worthy free download.
