Close Lobsters at Big Takeover

After a recent reunion, now we have the first new recordings by this C86 era band. It sounds like they haven’t lost a step in the 25 years since their last recordings and in particular this release reminds me more of their earlier stuff, particularly their 1st album Foxheads Stalk This Land. Another thing about this two-song single is that while both songs veer close or hover above the five-minute mark, it never feels boring. I like the nod to New York on the “New York City in Space” as well. Recommended!
