Review

A low-fi rockish alternative piece of music. Unpolished, hardly balanced and therefore slightly off in terms of sound and conception. The medium of choice had been a tape on which those six tracks had been distributed equally on both sites. All comes with a surprisingly charming cover artwork. It lacks the seriousness, which is quite an ample nod into the direction of the music. It should be noted that the overall length is just a bit above twelve minutes, which leaves little room for exploring ideas in each of the tracks.

All is rather straight-forward and mostly without much of a playing around. Riffs and arrangements are repeated excessively, while vocal elements play a somewhat crucial and dominating role. Distorted as these appear, it is up to them to create a counterpoint to the (often) monotonous performance of the instruments.

This release has a certain charm, but it tends to wear off rather fast and unmistakeably. There is simply not much to go by in terms of overall complexity, variation and interesting facets.
