SCRAMBLED LIMBS is the solo project of Sam Rodwell, erstwhile guitarist with Huddersfield psych rockers, Termite, and the Leeds based jam collective, Inky Milk.
With modern musical influences such as Australian behemoths, Pond, together with the likes of Soft Machine and Love from the good ol’ days, you can expect some big chunky riffs and the odd, weird, off kilter time signatures.
And this is what you get with, ‘Vacherin,’ the debut EP from SCRAMBLED LIMBS. Let’s just say it’s not quite your conventional pop song type. Thank goodness.
I admit, it did take a couple of listens, but I reckon that’s a great sign. ‘Instant’ songs often have a tendency to become rather sickening or boring quite quickly. Songs like ‘Vacherin‘ tend to keep giving a lot longer, with each subsequent listen bringing something new and fresh that the listener had previously missed.
I don’t know there’s a lot more I can say at this stage, other than Sam plays, records, mixes, promotes, makes the tea, everything, by himself.
(The ‘Vacherin‘ EP is available to download here from Friday 19th February.)
