For me, the P-BRANE EP delivers on all the promise that Plaid had after their debut album. Subsequent albums didn't have the same luster, but immediately, on "Coat," the complexity and musicality are back. The brightness of "Diddymousedid" also re-injects the sense of whimsy and fun that to some extent had faded from their work. "Stills" is much icier, but with a beautiful, drifting synth line, and the static that starts "Mfaus" quickly resolves into some frenetic digital electro. Plaid should always been this good.

Happy and intricate, and a little more intensely minimalist and aggressive toward the end. Not for those who like their music dark and nasty, and for those who find undersampling (an effect exploited quite a bit in the first track) annoying.

some people (though not the earlier posters) consider this a slight release, but i absolutely love it. the first time i heard plaid i thought they sounded fairly cheesy but something happened one damn where I fell in love with them... three of the four songs on the EP just knock me over.

The first track Coat is an f****** amazing stormer, very gritty and dirty with some lush strings that kick in after a few mins....I'm not too keen on the 2nd track, but thats just me. The last track needs to be longer, a lot longer.

one of plaids best releases i think, has a weird quality to it, in that on their own the tracks sound good, but listened to as a whole ep they sound fantastic, it becomes better than the sum of it's parts!

This is right up there, you can really here the new technology these guys must have laid their plaidy hands on in recent months as i listen to Trainer at least once a week and the some of the sounds do sound dated.
Well worth the money, it will make you smile.
