/Folk punk, Alt-folk, Ethnic punk, Mood music/
Comment: the debut issue of the Spain-based collective Ukulele Clan Band sounds like a party at the epicentre of a carnival. More profoundly, the result is intense and emotionally upsetting full of exuberant feels, delicate humour and key changes. The songs are performed with tremendous passion and power. Inspite of a huge load of dashes and dodges this 6-track issue is devoid of magniloquent postures and hollow gestures. However, the second half of the EP lays bare the more arty side of the group. The follow-up to this EP is The Sun. Great by any means.
