Low - Fye: My First EP (UK 2008)
This EP here comes from a guy who lives in North Wales, who does all the singing and playing on a piece of music, he simply titles "My First EP". He calls himself LOW - FYE and the EP was recorded 2008 on a digital 4-track recorder. Most of it sounds ... well, rather lofi, sometimes it's just an acoustic guitar and a voice (e.g. "A Careless And Disorganized Song/Make Up Your Mind") we hear, sometimes some more sounds are added to good effect ("Symptoms", "Today")'; some tracks are instrumental. Don't let the fact that the sound isn't latest hifi stop you from downloading this EP, because it is realy good.
My favourite tracks are "Today" and "Repeat", that both show a strong SYD BARRETT influence (rather the BARRETT of "Terrapin" and "Dominoes" than of "Piper" or "See Emily Play" one should probably add).
