Format: Audio CD
"I got magic in my head, magic up my NOSE, magic coming out my fingers, magic crying out my eyes," Adam Baker distantly howls, behind a fog of warming-up instruments.

Well, body parts are not the only places where the Annuals keep magic -- it ripples and shimmers all throughout the "Big Zeus" EP. Three songs from the debut album (or strikingly similar), and two B-sides -- and all of them are enchanting little indiepop melodies. Think the Arcade Fire, but a lot perkier.

It opens with a joyfully chaotic song wound with twisting synth, clatters, and the occasional trumpet, loosely wound into a catchy tune. And Baker sings brightly about drugs, their allure even when you try to get clean, love, baby white mice, and "sometimes, the sunlight/It just won't let me cry/When leaves tickle my arms I can't help but let my mouth sing!"

It's followed by "Complete, or Completing" -- a steady piano melody that blossoms into a dramatic little pop tune that sounds like a military march on some good acid. And "Ida, My" is a gentle swirling folk ballad riddled with twisted synth notes, distorted samples, and a raging riff at the end.

Then there's the two songs not included in their debut album -- "Ease My Mind," an angular little ballad that revolves around acoustic guitar. And finally there's "Misty Coy," a hauntingly chaotic pop tune that goes back to the first song's style -- weird layers of synthesized sound, clashing vocals, and a mildly catchy tune woven in there.

For the record, if you know the Annuals' "Be He Me," you will already have three of these songs -- the other two are good, but not quite as brilliant. But as an introduction to the Annuals' unique sound, "Big Zeus" is a brilliant little sampler of their work -- shimmering, complex and sweet.

It's followed by "Complete, or Completing" -- a steady piano melody that blossoms into a dramatic little pop tune that sounds like a military march on some good acid. And "Ida, My" is a gentle swirling folk ballad riddled with twisted synth notes, distorted samples, and a raging riff at the end.

Then there's the two songs not included in their debut album -- "Ease My Mind," an angular little ballad that revolves around acoustic guitar.

Most of this comes from their musical skills -- we have gently chiming acoustic guitar, jazzy drums, piano and little windings of colourful synth. But on the other hand, we get sputtering jagged riffs, military marches, wild psychedelic distortion -- and it's all layered together like a fine cake. Also add stomps, handclaps, and the occasional tambourine.

As if their music wasn't dense enough, Baker's voice winds through the music in all forms -- he sings smoothly and pleasantly, but also howls joyously, laughs like Mr. Hyde, yowls, and sometimes talks as if from far away. Sounding that cheerful, it's amazing that his songs can be so downbeat -- drugs, unpleasant shows ("Silence all the clocks tonight/It's show time, with drinks to spill"), and seeking a "simple day, a simple way."

"Big Zeus" tacks two B-sides onto three solid songs from "Be He Me," but this solid little EP is definitely worth hearing -- happy music, sad songs. Delicious.

I saw these guy's about a year ago and bought this album at the show. I liked them alot. I put the cd on and it rarely leaves the changer. Not earth shattering but I can't stop listening to it.
