Dig yourself in because this is gonna be a long one. A long one but a feast of the senses for all post-rock aficionados. This is actually one half of Massachusetts band Caspian’s debut EP ‘You Are The Conductor’. It can be found amongst other gilt edged instrumental gems on the Lost Children net label (‘The Silent Ballet, Volume One’). ‘Quovis’, ‘Further Up’ and ‘Further Out’ compliment each other well, the seamless segue helps of course but this mini compilation places Caspian in the premier league of rocks instrumentalists. The final assault may lose some of the melodic grandeur of the opening sequences but this is not Hollywood and sometimes happy endings spoil listener returnability. Caspian’s debut album ‘The Four Trees’ is almost upon us and will probably go some way to making sure that ‘All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone’ won’t have it all its own way this year. KD
