The EP of Truth & Regret

(People Are Strange; US: Import; UK: 6 Feb 2012)

The Greenwood Brothers––Adam and Leigh––offer up a third EP of spare post- psychedelic darkness that asks us to imagine Syd Barrett having sprung from the head of Zeus in a world that had already known My Bloody Valentine. Driven by acoustic guitars, “Our Little House” and “Sleep Alone” are both convincing and simple and all the more affecting for their understatement. “Secret Matters of the Heart” opens with a more serrated riff and lyric before morphing, albeit momentarily, into something bright and shining, before slipping back into the darkness. The closing “Waltz with Her” serves as perfect exit music for this short but deeply nourishing sonic film.
