2 stars If I am not wrong, Long Grass is the first Her Name is Calla EP, released back in 2010 which means the introduction of this nice mellow band. This release consists of three songs that make a total time of 14 minutes, where one can listen to the band's first steps and the inherent melancholic, soft sound that produces hints of post rock. Nice music for quiet and relaxing moments, but even for sad ones.

It opens with "Long Grass", a nice acoustic guitar-piano-voice composition in which the singer adds a delicious disarming flavor. What I like of this song is that in moments all of a sudden they add strings that produce different nuances, making it much more interesting. The last two minutes are more emotional, I really like them. The following track is "A Sleeper", which is very different from the first one. Here we can hear people clapping and singing in group, it is like an indie joyful track, whose vocal part might remind you of some old post rock themes. The late addition of strings makes it a better piece as well.

Finally "The White and the Skin". This is another short and melancholic piece where acoustic guitar leads and male voice accompanies. What I like from it is that the intensity is increasing and also decreasing while the seconds pass, it is full of changes, but with a clear structure. The 3 tracks of this EP are pretty nice, they talk about the kind of music Her Name is Calla provides, though in the upcoming releases their direction might have changed. I invite you to listen to them in Bandcamp, you will have a nice time. My final grade, 2 stars, just a short EP.
