Always, 1995

Release Date
Sean Dodds is certainly in a rich vein of form at the moment. Just a few months after releasing Baker Island's second album Restless Legs, they're back with a new EP Always, 1995 which features a guest turn from Life Model's Sophie Evans. It opens with the thundering drums and typically bendy guitar of the title track and then rattles through three equally impressive new recordings which take the band in some interesting, more synth-led new directions. "Low Cost Locust" is probably the best of a good bunch, where Dodds tones down the racket and moves into more contemplative, gothic territory, not a million miles away from peak-Cure.
