2 stars A couple of nice songs!

This is a split EP released in 2011 between Ana Never and Rosa Parks, a couple of young post-rock bands who are trying to gain a place in this difficult musical realm. The split is available for download via bandcamp, so if you want two good songs more in your musical library, then go and get it. As you can imagine, each band has only one song here, the first one reaching six minutes and a half, while the second one is one minute longer.

"2 Our Mothers" is the contribution of Ana Never, a six minute track where the guitars are the lead instrument here, first with a soft beginning, and later adding a more emotional tune. I like how it progresses, how the drums also do their work and put together an enjoyable atmosphere, giving as a result a good post rock song. After four minutes it slows down, then it begins to progress once again, creating a friendly and emotive atmosphere that will explode seconds later, making a powerful ending.

And Rosa Parks offers "Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia", a weird and peculiar name for an almost eight-minute track. Though the music is not that weird actually, it starts softly with drums, guitars and bass, later is begins to progress, to add new elements and figures while the seconds pass. It makes some changes, sometimes with an increased intensity, sometimes much softer. After five minutes vocals enter, yelling, creating a disarming atmosphere, something very post-rockish. The last minute is a bit heavier and more emotional.

This is a nice split EP, two bands and two nice songs, but nothing more. My final grade, two stars. Enjoy it!
