Permanent Clear Light - Maurice N'Est Pas La 7” (Regal Crabomophone winkle 31)

The Finnish group, Permanent Clear Light are back with a new 7" EP featuring three new songs all taken from their recording sessions for their next LP. It features 15 minutes of new music, crammed onto a 33rpm 7" and starts off with the happy song, Maurice, which reminds me a bit of very early Porcupine Tree. It has a long spacey intro before the highly effected spken word like vocals. It is also a bit funky in a weird way with the musical focus on the bass drums and synths with quite little guitar.  One in Five is highly inspired by the MOVE and a shorter pop song. This Quiet Smiling Man closes the EP with a slower track with some mellotron and a quite dark lyric about Robert Oppenheimer. Beautiful Doors inspired organ towards the end of the track. Not as rocking as usual but some great songs. You can read more about this release here:
