Vancouver's Sleuth are notorious for taking AGES between releases, and this mini-album is certainly no different, coming five years after their previous album, "Out Of The Blue Period". But thankfully, the band have not really changed their sound all that much, giving us the same rich, melodic and intelligent janglepop that endeared them to us in the first place. Each song on here is an absolute gem, from the quick and driving opener "Flowers" to the more lush, synth-laden "Royal Red" all the way through to the epic Close Lobsters-esque closer, "This Line". Though this album may be far too brief, there are plans for an impending follow-up, which was recorded at the same time, and hopefully to be released by year's end!
Not limited. All songs written by Sleuth. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
