This is a picture disc which comes in a picture sleeve (and a very cool postcard as well) - you’ve got to admire the effort but an opaque sleeve does render the picture disc a little bit pointless. Still, who’s to quibble? It looks very nice, the price isn’t stupid, and what’s more it actually sounds good too! SQÜRL is Jim Jarmusch’s new band, a stoner-psych trio also featuring Carter Logan and Shane Stoneback, who mix slow, doomy drumbeats with crackling sheets of molten sustained guitar fuzz on the cinematic opener ‘Pink Dust’ with a churning intent, before ‘Dead Naked Hippies’ quietens things down and brings in vocals for a dusky Americana-doom slow burner somewhere between Mark Lanegan, Earth and Om.
Over on the other side ‘Little Sister’ is slow, soulful, drunken blues like Harvey Milk gone country, or S ND Y P RL RS playing a Teenage Fanclub song, the bright melody tempered by a slow, distorted guitar which sounds like it’s in the process of giving up on life. Excellent. Then to close there’s ‘Some Feedback For Jozef Van Wissem’. I won’t describe that one so it can be a surprise. There’s four minutes of it. Very good EP!
