Jokes aside, this is essentially 3 great songs with field recordings interwoven to form a very chilled and interesting 7 track release. It could be argued that the band would have been no worse off just releasing a three song EP but the added elements set it apart and draw the listener to a ‘place’ and ‘time’ reflecting the artists journey behind the music. I personally think field recordings really enhance some releases because they create a connection to the real world as opposed to a studios closed and controlled environment.
This is a solid little EP that deserves your 15 minutes. They recorded it in June of 2018 and finally released it into the word just before xmas 2019 so as far as fanfare and promo goes..this has been well under played if for no other reason than the timing.
