REVIEW: Skinny Dipper - Masks EP
The instrumentation on this EP is full and varied, including two violins and a flugelhorn, as well as the usual guitar, drums and keyboard. The melodies are divine, with cinematic scope, and the lead vocal and supporting harmonies could melt the coldest heart. This little record will make both your sunny fall days and chilly nights better. And while it is an auspicious debut, I suspect this assembly can go even higher with more time.
