The likelihood is that not many people will see Joe Bargdill's independent film 'Missing' and - as a consequence of this - a similarly small amount of people will probably never hear Upstate's official soundtrack. Not having seen the film it's hard to comment on its quality but if it's as good as the soundtrack it should be worth checking out. At just 16 minutes long there is little time to waste and Upstate's style - a mixture of Simon And Garfunkel's misery-tinged folk and the crisp drum percussion of The Comsat Angels - is a winning formula that suggests the group who created it will be ones to watch for releases not geared towards the confines of a soundtrack. Yet all five tracks hint of an impending tragedy about to happen, serving as a believable commentary to the events of a film. Surprisingly the group members sent their contributions by mail but there's a cohesiveness evident on this recording that suggests they really should meet up.
