First things First - Anything involving singer/guitarist/musician/songwriter-extraordinaire Brian Moss is gold. If you see his name on something, buy it! His other bands include: The Wunder Years, The Ghost, Hanalei.
*The songs are listed in the wrong order on the CD jacket. song 3 and 4 are switched. Track 3 is really called "The Exhibition" and track 4 is "Picturebook"*
This short-lived 2-man project came to life somewhere, I Believe, between the end of the Wunder Years & before the creation of the Ghost. There are six tracks here. Really there are five, the last track is only a one minute outro. Regardless, these five songs are nothing short of musical genius.
01.Old Man Maple- Picking up where the Wunder Years left off, this is a rowdy rocker, with a catchy main riff and throaty vocals.
02.Watership- Very catchy guitars, great bouncy bass line. Verses and outro show off the softer side.
*03.The Exhibition- If there is a standout track, this is it. Very pretty, great lyrics and vocals. The bridge riff will be stuck in your head for months. Brians next band the Ghost also do a version of this song, slightly different, equally good. This is how I know the song titles are switched on the CD jacket, because the Ghost also do this song, but not "Picturebook".
*04.Picturebook- Rocker with hauntingly eerie verses sandwhiched between heavy guitar choruses and bridges.
05.Chalice- Great moving bass lines, intricate guitars. Very moody and grooving with a hard hitting powerful breakdown towards the last quarter of the song.
This is an amazing EP. For fans of indie-rock and post-punk type stuff. Goes great on a mixed CD with other Brian Moss Bands.
