While Mary has been looking for unidentified flying objects Adam Walton has been putting together this cool new EP.
‘Mary Sees UFO’s’ is five acoustic tracks that display a maturity to his previous ‘man and guitar’ output. Both the sound and the sleeve take me to the post-Syd, pre-Dark Side era of Pink Floyd – whether this is intentional I do not know, but it certainly is not a bad thing.
Summer and hope are shining through the mournful cracks in the songs, particularly in the beautiful Have You Seen Lyra Today? Intricate attention has been paid to the guitar work and placements and the subtle dazed spaced-out production. The title song is in a similar vein and I love the ending that leaves you hanging there.More
