Cult of Luna
(Andy Synn wrote these three reviews of recent and forthcoming EPs.)
It’s been a busy, busy week for me this week… but, then, when isn’t it?
It’s times like these, though, that I really appreciate the short-form, straight-to-the-point, structure provided by a good EP.
It’s a place for bands to experiment, to explore new ideas, and to formulate these little (or not always so little) slabs of perfectly proportioned form and function without having to worry about living up to the demands or expectations surrounding a “full-length” release.
Of course, one of the EPs featured here today is basically long enough to be considered an album – although I can see why, after listening to it, the band themselves declared it an EP – but all three of them manage to give a more focussed impression of each of the bands in question, while also providing an attention-grabbing primer for whatever they’re going to do next.
And so, without further ado…
