(1) Shelter Song (seems to be the same version as the album with slightly different mix - I like the album mix better)
(2) Prisms - interesting tune would fit right in on 'Sun Structures' full length album.
(3) Colours to Life (same version as the full length album - this mix is fuller - less muddy that the album 'Sun Structures'
(4) Ankh - another interesting tune that would fit right in on the 'Sun Structures' release.
(5) Jewel of Mine Eye - (the best song (in my opinion) on the EP - I like this very much.
This EP is a bit pricey for 5 songs but worth it for the 3 new songs. Not sure who is benefiting from the exobitant price but hopefully the band is!
Oddly enough I only heard of this group through an alert I have setup on google during my 'Syd Barrett' phase that compared them to early Floyd.
I took a chance and bought the 'Sun Structures' release without even previewing the songs - it was the end of a crazy day and it seems like the right thing to do at the time.
Once in the car system it has not been removed ever since until I found 1 copy available and sold by Amazon directly.
I am hoping the band tours the East Coast as I really like their music and song writing skills.
If they could hook up with the producer of the 'Black Angels' that would be over the top as to me the album and EP could use a better mix to bring out the vocals a bit and really make the music pop.
These releases are still excellent and Temples is my new favorite band.
Another bonus with this EP is that the booklet includes the words to all of the songs where as 'Sun Structures' does not.
Highly recommended band and releases.
"Shelter Song EP" (5 tracks; 20 min.) starts with the title track, the song that has put Temples on the map (but for me one of their "weaker" tracks). It is followed by a fantastic "Prisms", a light romp that features plenty of mellotrons. I just wished it would go longer than its 3 minutes' running time. Then comes "Colours to Life", a standout that is on the debut album (and since then also released as a UK single. The 4th track is "Ankh", another must-have Temples song with great hooks and lush instrumentation. The EP closes with "Jewel Of Mine Eye", on okay track, but clearly not up to the same standard as the other songs. But it's a minor quibble. If you are, like me, desperate for additional material from the band that is not on the debut album, this EP is a MUST HAVE. As an aside, I bought this EP from a reseller here on Amazon who is in Japan (as this is a Japanese release) and I received this in a matter of a week or so, very nice. Equally great is that it contains a booklet with the lyrics, both in Japanese and English (the US release of the debut album does not have the lyrics to the songs).
I saw Temples in concert about 10 days ago here in Ohio, and what an incredible 60 min. set that was, confirming the talent that you hear on the studio tracks in a live setting, and then some. They played of course Shelter Song and Colours to Life, but also Prisms and Ankh from this EP, reason I just HAD to buy this. This band is going places. If you have a chance to see them live, do not miss them! Meanwhile, "Shelter Song EP" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
