James positively charged out of the gate with this record, a compilation of their first two singles. The band's style at this point is a folk/new wave hybrid that is absolutely bursting at the seams with energy. The songs are short, sharp, inventive, and uniquely idiosyncratic but appealingly catchy. It still sounds fresh today. One of my all time favorite debuts.
