I know bands on Ecstatic Peace have a debt to Sonic Youth but the new CD by Tall Firs is just so good at intermittently sounding like Uncle Thurston's mob, it needed a brief resume from me.

8/10 Brian Staff review, 27 March 2008
I know bands on Ecstatic Peace have a debt to Sonic Youth but the new CD by Tall Firs is just so good at intermittently sounding like Uncle Thurston's mob, it needed a brief resume from me. It's der yoof in hazy, windswept mode. Track 3 'Hairdo' throws loads of playful, duelling minimal guitar shapes, that clackity Steve Shelly percussion & that inquisitive drawl. Other tracks range from atmospheric melancholic slo-core lounge , full of wistful drama to dusty highway cruising chuggers. They have their own sound though, a bit like a lazy, jazzy Sebadoh in parts but with the grace of Codeine, lots of meandering, meshing guitars & freeform drums. Songs quietly implode then build back up in a crescendo of star gazing cacophony. They're quite stately sounding, very pure & dreamy. I like them lots & so should you if you dig underground classic US alt rock. CD only is 'Too Old to Die Young', their 2nd I stink, but don't quote me!
