Strata EP by Rafiq Bhatia
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Rest Assured
Strata is the EP that preceded guitarist Bhatia's major album statement, Yes It Will -- but its value goes beyond serving as a table-setter. "Sunshower" and "Greenhouse" are both less manic than the centerpieces of the full-length -- and so the extent to which they work as lush soundscapes only hints at an even bigger future for this band, beyond its chops-based reputation. High Priest's vocal on "Statements" is OK, while the new arrangement of Flying Lotus' "Pickled!" is more successful. These tunes came out first, but they go down great as "bonus tracks" after a full listen to Yes It Will.
