Baroness - Live at Maida Vale (Relapse Records)

A teaser before the main event...
Release Date: 
21 Jul 2013 - 11:30pm

This little four track EP was recorded at Studio 4 for the BBC's Rock Show in July 2012; about a month before those unlucky Baroness fellows were involved in a coach crash that completely fucked the tour they were doing at the time. Luckily for Europe, Baroness are returning in Sept/Oct 2013 to pick up where they left off. The four tunes on here are all from the Yellow & Green album (2012) and are as follows: Take My Bones Away, March to the Sea, Cocainium and The Line Between; all fine tunes from a fine album.

There's not much I can say about this EP except that it's far too short - let us pray to our chosen deities that a full live album is in the making as all four tunes on here are executed with precision, demonstrating how tight a live outfit Baroness are. I see this EP as an amuse bouche to whet the appetite for the up-coming tour - the only problem being that Baroness aren't touring here yet...
