This is my second "review" of Valar's We Have A Home Among the Trees EP. I write twice because I've somehow contrived to delete the last and because the EP has grown on me like a fungus. A wonderful fungus. Here is the EP streamed in full. Start track 2, Wolf I playing as you read on.

Buy this EP. It costs AUD$10. That's just under £6! That's nothing. I challenge you to think of 7 whole numbers smaller than 6. It can't be done! That's the sort of value we're talking about here. It's barely £1 per track. 1 is the smallest whole number there is! I know!!

With or without my clever numberwork this EP will sell itself. The falsetto can't help but draw attention. It soars between guitar effects like an eagle through ravines. But it's wilder than an eagle. It's a tiger. A haunting, post-rock tiger. Like them on facebook to find out when their next show will be.
