Fans of Tides of Man and Evaline: prepare to meet your new favorite band. On their third EP Disillusions of Man, Belle Epoque cultivate an expansive, effect-laden progressive rock atmosphere, but distill it down into tracks of a more manageable length. The EP is a grower; "Lying Through Teeth" is a bit of a slow start, but Disillusions of Man is the kind of effort that is unconsciously good. While "Not Going Home" was the turning point for me, slow jam "Disappear" cinched it. Channeling a bit of As Tall As Lions, though, Belle Epoque kill it on "Disappear," and it's damn hard to write a good slow song. With three EPs and roughly half a decade under their belt, it's about time Belle Epoque break out, so listen in and stake your claim now.
