Indiepop veterans, John Peel faves and ex Sarah Records band Even As We Speak have released their first material since 1993. Entitled The Black Forest it’s a 5 track EP and the first three songs here sound like they have never been away. Standout tracks Clouds and Such A Good Feeling are likely to be two of the best indiepop songs you are likely to hear this year. To these ears it’s sadly let down by the last two tracks and maybe it should be a three track 7″ rather than a 10″ release as planned. But that’s what fast forward buttons are for I guess!
