Two epic tribal jams from loveable Brooklyn outfit Big A Little a. "Mossy" and "Glow Wreath" make up an EP that reflects a less aggressive band, now leaning more towards drums, percussion and chanting than the joyous bursts of loveable noise heard on the LP "gAame". It's a more laid back vibe, not so in your face and all over you at the same time; less skronk, less shouting, fewer odd sounds. Both songs here are of substantial length and both fade out into a drone-like second part. Previously you suspect the band might have put down more songs instead of creating differing parts to the one track, but not this time around - and it works perfectly. "Glossy" is unmistakably Big A Little a, but there's a progression to be heard - and maybe even a growing musical maturity. We get moments that are reminiscent of the full length too, we just don't get the most energetic and convulsive parts. Any fans of These Are Powers, Liars or even Animal Collective should find themselves at home here, while there are even hints of a more restrained Health to be heard.

ONEIDA/PTERODACTYL - THE GREEN CORRIDOR I

ONEIDA contributes two experimental drones. PTERODACTYL's spazzy noise punk has long gone, while the psychedelic parts are far more loose, warm and unmistakably rural in an urban way. Mind-bending bliss with just enough hints of harshness.
