Are you still stealing or composing? The six instrumental rockers from Texas make no secret of their admiration for the post-rock icons Maserati. Influences good and good. But if the connoisseur were to be shown the effective introduction of "robot cave dwellers", the original would immediately float before his eyes. When a Godspeed-You! homage ("... for all my friends") follows with all kinds of synthetic violins, the question of the independence of a band can be asked. Of course, there are also highlights like the melancholic Americana track "Happy Village", which conjures up the sunset with its elegiac acoustic guitar plucking. This reef is believed to have been heard on the last Earth album. Multi-instrumentalists or not. "A Drink For All My Friends" can be rated average at best. On their upcoming album My Education have to decide which way they want to go in the end. To want to make all friends happy at the same time only works in the rarest of cases.
