Upstate
Missing: The Official Soundtrack
Broken Lamp Productions

This is a soundtrack to a film I haven't seen but it evokes images all on its own. "Falling Missiles" Is an elegant song with evocative singing by John Wenzel. The songs unusual rhythm is part of its appeal. "Orange at Night" (a very R.E.M title that one) is folksy and intimate. The guitar playing is subtle and sweet. "The Static" is dramatic yet minimal. Wenzel's voice is very subdued here.

"Shaking Badly Anthem" closes the EP on a high note. It features more of the bands brilliant sense of melody and tension. If the soundtrack is anything to judge by the film must be great.
