Beak> were not a band I had never heard of, and I’m not even sure how I stumbled upon this EP (split with <KAEB, obviously). Spacious instrumental music has always been pretty appealing to me so it’s always great to find more.
The Dead Weather really impressed me with the first couple of albums but unfortunately this time around it felt a little formulaic. It’s one of those albums that just kind of you passes you by as it’s playing the background, with nothing to really grab you.
