AllMusic Review by

Produced by Mitch Easter and recorded without any digital processing on vintage four-track analog machines, Birds of Avalon's THE OUTER UPPER INNER EP has an unadorned retro tone reminiscent of vintage rock records of the 1960s and '70s. Musically reminiscent of the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev's ornate dream pop, the Birds of Avalon bridge the gap between the indie rock present and the psychedelic past on highlights like "A Measure of the Same" and the centerpiece epic "Earthbound."
