I listened only to their bandcamp tracks which show potential for sure. Not sure if I'd be thrilled by a whole full length in this direction, but it's worth listening for sure and quite enjoyable. The main appeal for me are the main guitar lines that accompany the tracks - they do convey a nice feeling of loneliness=))

I've listened to the promo as reviewed here; I like the various ranges of the voice. It's catchy and glorious, and with that "western" guitar tone (very Sergioleonesque :D ), it makes for an original mix (I hear some Leonard Cohen too!).

I'm waiting for a complete first release now, with good production and a full set of songs.

I can't share your enthusiasm for this... ok, it's a demo, but it has 3 songs written by 10 year-olds... one is a disjointed acoustic mess, 2 are practically the same - with a "desert" theme copied from some second-rate western film soundtrack - and of which one has been recorded in a cupboard wearing a plastic bag on the head and a large carrot in the arse...

Yeah, think I will stick with this. I was listening to this 10 years ago, so it proceeds it somewhat.



But early days of course, and there is something there, so maybe when they get it together a bit I will have a go!

(By the way, since I've brought them up, you should really check out Monkey3 if you don't know them. I have loved them for half my life now, and finally got to see them at Hellfest this year, where they were my band of the festival - and I saw some fucking great bands!)

:D The carrot-in-the arse one, I've skipped this one, but the other two are full of promises, it is really good in all its clumsiness and hesitations; I think it can give birth to some great stuff.

I'll leave the "pleasure" of following them to you... :p
