4 stars If someone ever might have doubts about the cosmic essence of TEETH Of THE SEA's music ... this EP will resolve them all. Okay, they have a trumpet player in the line-up, which is unusual for this genre of course. And Sam Barton is called into action here too, that's true ... not a dominant aspect though, exceptional so much the more. So it all starts with impressions which were taken right In The Space Capsule - chirping synths and relaxed echoing guitars initiate while soon tribal drums come in. By and by the dramaturgy increases when the capsule seems to run into danger. Finally they reach for some haviness in the vein of Hawkwind.

While fading into the following Hypnoticon Viva I'm quite sure this has been recorded in one go - synth and guitar arrangements are brilliant, a lively bass on top of it ... this reminds me of Tribe Of Cro. The Island Is completes the song triple and they change to a relaxed gliding mood with Pink Floyd guitars and ambient sound patterns in the back. The trumpet serves a jazzy note, comparable to Alien Planetscapes. As for the compositional aspect not a challenge really but nicely put in any case. According to my taste TEETH Of THE SEA deliver an essential space prog EP here - genre fans can easily go for this.

4 stars I have not heard yet the long players of this London-based experimental quartet, but this EP gives promising signals from their futuristic tonal palette. Modern synthesizer sounds illuminate sharp cosmic visions I have currently heard from the records of Space Mirrors and Hawkwind, these songs staying in more restrained atmospheric creation and taking maybe more distant vantage point to the celestial adorations, leaving the intensity of heavy rock presence in space thrusting capsules for others. The longest main composition "The Island Is" astonishes with its tame meditative relaxation, sonic abstractions flowing quietly past the listener, and offering a fine soothing moment in cosmic peace. Sam Barton's trumpet is also allowed for beautiful solo moment, the cool horn sound fitting very well to the digital sound basis. A certain motivator to listen the longer recordings also if found.
