Hush Collector – Flowby Candy Cone CONE003CD
A magnificently moody EP from yet another band sporting a wonderfully plaintiff female lead voice. The four songs field a varied faire of fascinating heartaches and mental pains. The general feel of the record is downbeat and understated – just the thing for the garret lifestyle of modern art-school youth. The band supports well throughout but it has to be said it doesn’t really show its true potential until the third track ‘It don’t matter’ when a sudden burst of enthusiasm points the way to a slightly heavier sound I’d like to hear them explore in depth as they move forward. I really hope they make a go of it and they won’t be quite so hushed in the future.
