4 stars The Future Kings Of Psychedelia they are!

Let me ask a question what their purpose for the musical style is. The answer may be involved in the first track 10:66 on this silver disc I guess. We can harvest various sound-crops in 10:66 area; the Kraut-ish opening with mechanical noises, depressive and spacey meteor showers, heavy and psychedelic fuzz guitar solo, inorganic narration and dry, mellow flute sounds blended with loud guitar shouts, and the last aggressively cool rock and roll rush - all held by steady and lazy drumming. Ian's trailing guitar razz, Simon's slithery drumming, and Karl's bass rigidity can boost morale and activity of each other. And surprisingly, this song can get some pop texture in spite of full of progressive elements as previously mentioned. Awesome one.

October Moth is very comfortable in their laid back play, and contrary to this comfort, the sounds and noises like sawing off a metallic tree are also amazing. They should not betray our hope that they are always eccentrically shining. Of course, again various psychedelic fantastic scenes can be seen in the last track Lilly Lockwood (demo). The very last part is very mellow and dreamy but a bit eerie and foreseeing - how mysterious their atmosphere is I wanna say.

Finally, the simple sleeve can be very amazing for me - cannot help myself and burst out chuckling. This EP has wonder and mystery. Recommended.
