Lute FP I almost moved on halfway through, wondering if I’d listen to it much if I bought it. Then the last ‘song’ rolled, which is really just the whole album wrapped into one brilliant stream-of-conscious chunk of alternative rock. I’m still sorting out how the first album half differs from the final ‘song’, but therein lies the delight of the challenge.

Lush female vocals and tasteful guitar work play with the bottom-heavy rhythms, while melody and mature songwriting tie it all together.

Carsten Pieper Haha, I got their Girl/Boy Kiss EPs (catchy alternative pop/rock songs) to give myself a rest from the mostly proggy/heady stuff I mostly seem to be reveling in here at Bandcamp and what do Straight Sex do? They turn proggy with their next release :-))
So how could I possibly deny this offer?
So, catchy alternative prog songs, this time, er, pardon me, a 34 minute suite with many catchy moments.
Good thing, that we can choose whether to listen to the parts or the continuous suite! Favorite track: Hoitecathy (Full Track).

muschiosauro What a surprise! After two awesome EPs of straigthforward indie-rock, I would never expect such a bold and radical change. But yes. They decided to go full prog on this, with a seriously exhilarating 9-part, 35-minute suite integrating indie vibes into a larger, fresh and invigorating whole full of twists and turns, spaced out riffs and a great call and response interplay between the instruments and the warm female vocals. They say this is their final record: Reconsider it, guys! I want more! Favorite track: Hoitecathy III (The Battle I).
