RAIKES – EP REVIEW


Raikes – The Talk EP 

Raikes - The Talk EP

Release Date: Out Now

There’s only one thing better than discovering a great new band and that’s discovering a great new band that live within spitting distance of where you live. This EP from Liskeard lads Raikes has been around for a little while but I’m only just getting around to it now so, y’know, sorry about that. Opening up with the intricate guitar interplay of title track ‘Talk’ there are tones of Radiohead and Ride in that gentle, introspective indie style that comes out of the small town living in the UK (which out for the kick though, this one’s got a real kick). ‘Home’ is up next and has a more homespun folky vibe to it with soft vocals and that intricate guitar work once again before some strings give this a swell and then there’s a triumphant splash as they sing,  “This is our home, the sun it always warms my bones”.

On ‘Fault’ the band channel Travis at their peak but with a greater sense of purpose and when the chorus kicks in you really know about it – the guitars soar and the vocals strain to within an inch of going out tune without ever going out of tune. This collection closes out with ‘Matador’ and while Raikes are minimalist when it comes to song titles their music is the exact opposite. With that soft vocalled intricate start a feature again, the song soon builds in to some expansive, horizon scanning swell which brings to mind the likes of Contact Mo, Feeder and Elbow. Raikes seem to have harnessed the power, beauty and energy of the Cornish landscape and somehow fed it down the various microphones and mixers to produce this EP. A powerful and heady mix if you’re up for it.

  2. By definition, the lottery is a game of luck and chance.Lottery is not a good idea since it has a lot of negative factors that are included along with this idea. Negative factors such as lottery wastes your money, it builds the habit of being greedy and also can harm your life in the long term.It leads to addictions spending all your life savings on buying tickets this are the advise of my relations before today!!!
    Everyone wants to win the lottery. Whenever jackpots get to record breaking highs you and everyone in your family goes out and buys several numbers hoping and dreaming that one of the tickets will change your life forever. While most of us will never experience the financial bliss that is winning several million dollars, there are some people out there who have had the luxury of this vast amount of free money but will never divulge the sources of such favor most time you feel they understands the odds better but the truth is most huge winners of the betting has untold tales to tell the world on how it all happened.
    I'm KAREN HARGER; I have always wanted to be able to not live paycheck to paycheck or have any debt. I worked in accounting for about 14years and was barely able to make ends meet. It seemed like any time I moved up in the company and received a raise, my living expenses would go up significantly and I was never able to get ahead. Today i'm here to share my turning point testimony about Dr Savior who help me with the lucky winning numbers for (IA LOTTERY DRAWS) I won 1,000,000$ in my IA play lottery draws, I took an advice from a testifiers who talked about this great spell caster called Dr Savior, the testifiers placed a testimonies on a blog saying how Dr Savior helped her win the lottery by casting a luck lottery spell for her to win a lottery game, I was curious and I thought it was all joke not until I contacted this spell caster to know for myself how this work cause I have spend a lot buying tickets and I never win. I contacted him and he told me the necessary thing that need to be done and I did it and he told me to wait for 3 days and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which I did, Can you believe my name was the first among winners. If you're determined and believe in winning the lottery draws you can contact the great spell caster today to get your winning numbers!!!!
