Space On Earth...

The Mighty Progerians / OMSQ - Vertigo (2013)


This split EP is the third release from Belgium's Antée Records, and it brings quite a mix of styles into play between the two bands present. The Mighty Progerians have the A-side, with a three-part track (The Earth Is Flat / M.O.R.E. / Vertigo) that glides from one musical style to the next, blending elements selectively from sludge, post-core, desert rock, and a dash of jazz. OMSQ go with the 'one long song' approach, presenting Glass Eye Contact as their representative piece, with all of its glimmering keyboard noises, thrumming strings, and carefully-controlled build-up of energy; there's a fairly heady prog approach to the way they set up looping alterations of riffs and rhythms, and it pays off with a big finish. Definitely worth snagging if you're a fan of genre-melting prog/post/desert rock; copies are available at Mandai Distribution!
