lowish 3/5. liable to drop down lower.

Their style seems to have shot right passed the sweet spot they found on Old Raves End and straight into meh.

I think 3 and 4 are the better ones, but still imperfect

nothing that even comes close to T-1000 here (or Chapel, or Flickr, or...)

is it because they've shifted the focus from the music to the vocalists?

possibly. Kind of feeling an unwelcome RnB vibe in some places. Lyrics aren't great either.

only song i heard so far was forest, cause it's only one i can find on youtube, but it had a very t-1000 flickr of your eyes feel to it. still reminded me very much of swarms

I humbly and completely disagree

well T-1000 sounds like being on a spaceship, and Forest sounds like witnessing two people singing random angsty what what to a lake

I have to admit I'm not digging this or I'm highly impressionable.

One of the two.

@omni can't go to bandcamp at work -_- but only have to wait one more hour! and @mastille you're right, but it's just the vibe i get. like i could hear 'forest' and tell you that it's swarms. then again i listen to so little in the genre i could be completely wrong and sound retarded

All the tracks are quite enjoyable but that one that starts with P is my favourite.

Not as bad as I thought after reading comments, still disappointing after ORE. This style had been done so much better, they should just stick to what they did well.

i thought Street Halo was pretty disappointing, Kindred worked cause the songs were long as fuck

I find, for the most part, EPs are where the artist really shines because they're not stretching themselves so thin. I mean, if you have an artist who predominately releases LPs then yeah sure, but seeing as most don't they end up constructing better releases because all their attention is going in to just say 4 tracks

It depends on what the artist in question wants to accomplish really. A full-lenght is obviously usually more fleshed out, but a short and sweet EP can sometimes have a bigger impact.

There are some really classic full lengths out and when they're good they're more impacting than EPs can ever be but EPs are WAY more consistently great in the EDM world IMO.

I honestly don't see how anyone who actively listens to electronic music could ever make the clam that it "almost always" is the case
