The Capes - Taste EP Review
by Eric Bodrero

As the British invasion pushes ever onward, we get a short peek into the life of a south London musician via lead vocalist Kris Barratt and company's dream pop musical standouts The Capes, and none to soon. The Capes throw us through many loops in this six track EP, slinging around updated sounds from the Beach Boys on one track to their take on what the Pixies and the Clash should sound like on another. The musical gamut runs plenty deep here; everything from '60's psychedelic T.V-like anthems like "Tightly Wound" to quirky robotic keyboard interplay and smashing drum sets found in "Galaxy Fraulein". The Capes also entwine playful, wispy guitar hooks and beds of "ooh ooh ooh's" and "la la la's" with an experimental flare in "Regional Heats", then tone it down with an Oasis-like ballad in "Chromeless." There doesn't seem to be anything we can do to stop the onslaught of British new wave, and why would you? Just accept it with a smile and enjoy the debauchery.
