about

"The EP opens with maybe the loveliest, fuzz drone ever, hovering like some giant, hairy, rotating speaker in the sky. After a few minutes, the band creep in – gently bashing guitars, unspecified percussion, dreaming on melodica. It’s brilliantly warm, wonky and tranquil stuff that recalls the Beta Band’s earlier potterings. Some crisply picked acoustic floats in as the addled jamming fades out. Tape whirl, then an actual song, albeit a song that’s gurgled up from a drain on a sunny day – two fried voices singing semi-consciously over horizontal guitar and pots and pans. Great pop, hanging by a thread. Things meander nicely down several quiet avenues after that (spluttering sharp throbs and drones, birdsong, bells – of course there’s bells), fading away till a final, perfect finger picked reprise. The overall impression is like peeking in on some hazy jumble sale jam session, everything floating over everything else and occasionally coalescing into strange moments of beauty." The Joy Collective
