Dan Snaith is a genius. He's one of the most brilliant, innovative, unique, absolutely fun minds making music today.
If you like Manitoba or Caribou or whatever you call them, and if you like Caribou's "The Milk of Human Kindness," then you should definitely get this as well.
It's cheap, and worth much more.
The first track, "Yeti," is also the first track on "The Milk of Human Kindness," but here it doesn't have the initial squall of noise that starts that album out. (If you play that album on "Repeat all," that sound seems to imitate the sound made by a typical CD player starting over. Very cool.)
The second track, "The Spiritually Immature Mansion," aside from being brilliantly titled, is a shambling, groovy, almost baroque piece that will make you tap your feet and bob your head. It's cerebral, yet relaxing.
And the third and final track, "Boreal Forest Opper" is kind of haunting. It uses what sounds like a recorder, and maybe a cowbell, and at times sounds oriental and at other times Native American. It reminds me a little of parts of Sebastien Tellier's amazing album "L'Incroyable Verite." The song is long too, several minutes long, and probably the reason this CD is considered an e.p. and not a single.
Buy it, rock out, and enjoy.
