The US lofi-garage trio Eggs On Mars released the LP In A Desert Place on the 15th.
Eggs On Mars
There is a retro-feel to the music which they deliver in an unadorned naive form, giving the compositions an earthy honesty, that captivates the listeners attention. Eggs On Mars are able to deliver tracks which leave the listener feeling well disposed to the world as the untouched songs slip in to earshot, warts and all.
My pick of the nine track, plus one remix, album (available on bandcamp) being the fourth – Don’t Send Me.
The first track to surface from the EP, may well be known to those who have seen Harry Gump live, for those of us who haven’t, Longing For More is its first outing from an EP, having regularly featured the music since being introduced in 2014, I recommend adding to the collection when made available.
Luxuriant echoing reverberating guitar slowly circles out of the speakers filling the room with mesmeric folds of sound while the bass and percussion enable Nasari to give their songs an anchor around which to pivot the compositions with a dreamy vocal rounding out the music of a quartet I look forward to hearing much more in short order.
By way of an introduction the B side of the two track single Afterglow which was released recently – Robyn’s Room.
