Don't think I've ever seen Protectors but they are from Leeds so it's only a matter of time before I bump into them. Incidentally, this 12” EP was recorded by Matt Peel at Cottage Road studios which is where Cowtown recorded their last LP. Can't say I'm strong on opinion from what I've heard of the lads so far. When opener 'The Carousel' started Dave immediately declared its likeness to the Minder theme tune which isn't far from the truth and is also quite funny. Elsewhere they touch on elements of Idlewild, Buffalo Tom and perhaps early R.E.M with the addition of bolt-on anthemic choruses. Definitely picking up on an American college rock feel. Very considered stuff though a little too controlled and studious for my general tastes. There's some nice jangles on here though so it's definitely gonna appeal to you soft indie rock types out there.
