Released: April 10th
Not long after the release of the fantastic Slush Fund Blues EP which I cannot praise enough, Streaming Lights have pulled together a prototype of what their official debut album may sound like. It’s an album comprised of 18 months worth of material, ranging from all the songs featured on the previous EP, as well as even older songs in their discography.
Streaming Lights plan to head into the studio around summertime to introduce their new sound to their old material. I think this is a great idea to rerecord some of the older songs because they sound a little too different to be distinguished as a Streaming Lights song. The old sound is a little more indie based, with less electronics and more of a focus on guitar riffs. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that formula, but the songs would sound a lot better with the beefed up sound, fun factor and massive energy consistently present on Slush Fund Blues EP.
However tracks such as Cut Of Your Jib and It’s A Mystery are both great songs and I think they won’t need the recorded treatment as they capture the Streaming Lights’ new sound perfectly. I cannot wait to hear how the album will sound once it’s been rerecorded and officially released, but for now, you can hear it’s prototype below.
