And after having downloaded their latest EP, I took advantage of Bandcamp and downloaded this two-track single entitled "Lost is Found", whose length reaches only ten minutes. This one was released in 2010, so I assume these songs show more their roots, though actually their sound is practically the same here and in their "The Unknown Regions" EP.

Here this trio offers first a song entitled "Lost is Found" which is not that dreamy or atmospheric, but closer to the psychedelia. Here I like a lot the drums and of course the vocals, the strings are also very important (always) and they put the melody our mind will remember. The last minute is very cool, intense and instrumental, it is like a jam where the instruments become crazy. And the song finishes like that.

The second and last track is "Strange Things Are Afoot", and here they do sound as in that EP, with dreamy atmospheres, mellow vocals and a laid back sound. Before the second minute that atmosphere vanishes and a new structure begins, with great bass notes accompanied by constant drums and accurate guitars. Then the psychedelia reappears and the song continues as it began; a thing I must highlight, is their use of mellotron, which is creates that wonderful sound we all know.

Two good tracks without a doubt. Here you can have a taste of Sky Picnic's music, so I once again recommend you to download it. But well, according to my "rules" I don't use to rate singles or releases with 20 minutes or less length with more than two stars, and this is not the exception, but don't pay attention to the rating, better listen to the music.

Enjoy it!
