This is a rather great and generous EP which harks back to the days of shoegaze. This is not suprising given that one of the guests on the epic 13 and a half minute 'Ocean' (a cover version of a Velvet Underground track) is none other than Sonic Boom, him of Spacemen 3 fame.
It's an enthralling Oceanic sprawl of the most lovely enveloping kind, featuring an array of Analogue instruments and guitar, all reaching to achieve the highest levels of music that takes your head somewhere else. The other two tracks are more or less the comedown to the first one, more stable and simpler, but still heavily psychedelic and recorded with much heavyness and depth. The last track on the EP is a seven and a half minute instrumental drone piece based around a single chord, it's intense and gorgeous at the same time.
