Robin Guthrie: Springtime EP

Right as the snow is melting away and spring is on the horizon, I’m just now getting around to reviewing this Robin Guthrie EP that came out at the beginning of January. But that’s ok because of its title, and the music itself, which is a fitting soundtrack for the dawn of spring. “The Faraway” emerges without breaking through, providing a noticeable change but not a major contrast. After that it becomes more nocturnal, with piano melodies that hide behind darkened clouds. “All for Nothing” nearly has cricket sounds during the beginning, but the stillness gives way to a slow, dramatic wash which clears out a huge mass of regret and shame in order to start over at sunrise.
