Dreams Among Stars Dreams Among Stars

My first impressions of this EP were positive: pleasant cover of some bicycles by the sea, pleasant sounding name, and Mark Gaudet (Eric's Trip) on drums. I was thrown off by the contents. All of the tracks follow the same moody format over their five- to seven-minute durations: long stretches of quiet noodling guitars with heart-achy singing, followed by a loud period with crunchy guitars, then another quiet guitar period. Rinse and repeat over five tracks. (Independent)
