Aiding and Abetting

The Silver Negative  
Stealing Songs EP  
(self-released) 

Another kind of fifth 

Americana-tinged indie pop that flows so smoothly that it is almost impossible to remember that there are bands who cannot manage to write a single song as good as each of the four here. 

By and large, the Silver Negative is Bek Zaganjori, and there are hints here and there that betray the one-man nature of this recording. On the whole, though, the tight sound on these songs sounds like a band that has been playing together for ages. 

These four songs don't even last twelve minutes in all. Hardly a blip in time. But the wonder they create is much more far-reaching. There's not much analysis to do here. Zaganjori has crafted four gems that approach perfection. Drop everything and devote a fifth of an hour from your day to this EP. I guarantee that fifth will multiply quickly. Wonderful stuff.
