Such a simple yet brilliant disc. Only 4 tracks, but an ep I would easily bring to a desert island with me; experimental, dissonance, pop standards all blend into a tangibly filling delight. My Favourite Things shows SHJ moving well beyond their backcatalogue, as the poppy wholesomeness of the track's history is usurped by belching tones, feedback, distortion and more. Through it all, though, you can hear the delicate piano and steadying melody. It seems, on reflection, a taster of their future work, just as the rest of the ep delivers the main course. Few artists take such bold chances as this album typifies. Fewer still pull it off in such stunning fashion.
