Garm proves one again he is a real maestro with instruments and in vocalizing! Even if the actual synthetic sound has nothing to do with what ULVER used to perform, the music now is, in fact, a kind of soundtrack, well dimensioned and uniformly distributed in the tracks' length. Garm's opera voice is indeed amazing on "Vowels", which is the most bombastic sequence of the EP! I'd say that even "Little Blue Bird" tries to preserve something from the up mentioned one yet the dynamics is focused on acoustic touches. "Doom Sticks" doesn't impress by melodiousness but rather by effects and noises while "Eitttlane" is actually a remixed track from "Kveldssanger" album in 1995. This is a strange, sinister music but elegant! It is a pity that the material is too succinct!
