description

On their self-titled debut, the Early Years sift through the finer moments of early-'90s shoegaze and alternative rock with an added dash of '60s proto-punk for an impressively structured introduction. While bands such as Serena Maneesh and the Black Angels are much more aggressive with their guitar-driven approach, the Early Years' talent lies in their cohesive touch. Dave Malkinson's sandy-eyed vocals perfectly mesh with the band's gossamer guitar layers, allowing the Early Years' overall lushness to arrive without hesitation. "The Simple Solution" and "All Ones and Zeros" are both totally solid, each doused in anthemic appeal with droning guitars, but credit must be given to drummer Phil Raines. His quick-stepped performance throughout this ten-song set keeps the Early Years' atmospheric modern rock storm in line (check out the lilting beauty of "Brown Hearts"). But as soon as the Early Years get into a groove, leave it to the quintessential ballad ("Song for Elizabeth") to put a kink in things. Instrumental track "Musik der Fr hen Jahre" tries to rectify the hasty switch in moods, but it's the reverb-heavy burn of "So Far Gone" that saves the momentum, further showcasing the promise of the Early Years. They might not reach too far this time out, but they're onto something good here.
