The Pineapple Thief - Show A Little Love EP
The Pineapple Thief have been on the periphery of British progressive-rock for a while, and it’s difficult to understand why. This year’s Someone Here Is Missing was an ambitious album of melancholia, and this new EP features four new tracks which keep in with their prog tendencies, coming together to form one 16-minute whole. Leading off the CD is an edit of album track ‘Show A Little Love’, one of the highlights of said album, showing them in riff-heavy mode but with a little electronica thrown in for good measure. The lengthy centre-piece ‘To Live And Die To The Familiar Sounds Of...’ is a tour-de-force of horns, haunting melodies and acoustic introspection. Closing the EP are some re-workings of other album tracks, but these only pale in comparison to the new stuff on offer here.
