When it comes to the team behind Ramrock Records, who would be surprised that their latest release is Marvel styled 'dystopian' goodness.  

This 4 track EP is themed with an end of the world vibe brought on by toxic waste (are you listening utility companies?) via a Bristolian dub heritage.  The title track speaks for itself but you want to get heavy?  Yes I do - the deeper 'Self Dialogue' goes off into a strings vs. spaghetti western dub, twangy guitars seem to be 'in' at the moment.  The Sly remix is fully dubbed touching Bauhaus way (good one for forthcoming Halloween - I take it Bela Lugosi is still dead]'

'Land of Origins' is a anitdote to the dystopia with a theme of "love not hate"; it'd be cool mixtape starter but so is 'Self Dialogue' as there's lots of tension and growing hypnotic angst.

Equally mad is that the cover artwork is from fellow Ramrock artist, Greg Blackman (yes, he of the last review on YOU AND THE MUSIC with Mr Bird ft Greg Blackman - Over Again (Ramrock Records)  Who'd have guessed and more evidence that it's best to buy all of the label's releases.
