MEAN CAESAR: Self-titled: 12”EP

I’m sure I won’t be the only person to listen to this and thinks of Leatherface during the first track “The Lane,” such is the similarity in terms of the twin guitar drive and gravelly vocals on this one-sided 12”. However, it’s not a comparison which overwhelms the undoubted ability of this London (U.K.) band to make a mark for itself. The six big-sounding tracks are drenched in a melodic melancholy and I would suggest that whiskey would be the best beverage to partake of to create the perfect listening experience. A very good record from a band deservedly getting a lot of love on social media. –Rich Cocksedge (Little Rocket, littlerocketrecords.co.uk)
