Now this I like a lot. Two tracks from each of these bands, both from Falmouth in Cornwall. The Colour Sun tracks are really blissed out psychedelic folk. For a duo their music has real depth, and for me their songs are the stand-outs of this split. The first one is a largely instrumental jam, lots of repetitive grooves, lots of room for the melodies to breathe. It's got a real lazy summer afternoon feel to it which is great, feels like they really captured a moment. Their other one is much more vocal-led but still feels spontaneous and laid back. I'd not heard either band before today but I'm most impressed. Red River Dialect are a five-piece band, playing something which closer resembles folk, I suppose. They've got drums and the vocals are much more prominent. Their songs appear to have been recorded live but it's a well-mixed recording so that doesn't detract from anything. Their first track is a fairly straightforward number but on the second one there's some nice scrapey Warren Ellis-style fiddle playing and it's got this lovely hazy Eastern feel. They sort of remind me of Calexico in places in this song, too. I'm glad it's long. I want to take this EP home with me.
