Never having been ones for fanfares and crescendos, it's little surprise that the new EP from London's Sergeant Buzfuz covers much the same ground as their previous material.
Which will do just nicely, thank you very much! 'Knock Knock Knock' is all mandolin, acoustic guitars and violin, but the restrained production the lack of pomposity from songwriter Joe Murphy safely manoeuvres it well away from Mumford And Sons territory, sounding far more natural.
It's not all about the title track either. 'Shift In The Sand' and 'Horns and Claws' are laments in the style of an early Belle And Sebastian, both given space to breathe rather than being buried under the weight of effects. Proof of the benefits of not over egging the pudding.
