This tape only release from progressive sonic explorers The New Lines sees this mystical sounding and slightly enigmatic (finding a promo shot of these guys is harder than finding a unicorn) three piece peddle a sound that reminds me of a number of progressive rock bands, mixed with a lighter space age pop slant. It's quite a beguiling blend by all accounts, and if you like to sip tea and listen to a band that sounds like Caravan mincing about with a male fronted Stereolab, then you probably should check out this EP. It feels more like a full album than an EP as there are 11 tracks of progressive, slightly psychedelic pop with a space age feel. You could argue that it is an EP because, well to paraphrase Dubya Bush “...it feels lighter, dont it??”, because it's a tape, but you would be laughed out of house and probably home. This...go on then EP, has a really nice warm full sound, and the songs although short are very memorable and interesting. These pop explorations are quite subtle and have many a hook to drag you in. The haunting vignettes that sit gracefully between the songs are also pretty sweet. They give the LP (EP you twat!!) a very cinematic feel and lend a grandiose atmosphere to the proceedings. All in all this is a very promising opening salvo from a band that could've sounded more like Southside Johnny as they are from NY/NJ and less like they'd been living in Canterbury with Martians for 12 years...great stuff.
