If last year's breakthrough album We Move Through Weather was Tarentel's high water mark, then these two companion EPs could be interpreted as the rise and fall of that flood. The same recording sessions are responsible for all three releases: Paper White represents the beginning, We Move Through Weather is the inspired centerpiece, and the 43-minute Big Black Square signals the smoky ending. Played in succession, the three releases chart Tarentel's journey from dynamic, guitar-driven instrumentalists to perpetually curious treasure hunters of the mysterious sounds that most of us take for granted. If this were the end of Tarentel's story, they would have enough riches to last a lifetime. Eight years into their career, however, it seems they've only just begun.
