Consider this EP as a calling card for the breadth of instrumental possibility that this band is capable of. Driving, psychedelic outer space surf twang powers "Daydream Pusher" with a manic look and a raised eyebrow. Big sky melodies of the open range ride through "Time to Walt" with hints of Yo La Tengo and Spaghetti Western cowboys. But there is also something new afoot in the ITLM universe: electronic beats and using the computer as a composition tool, resulting in the cagey interplay of 4/4 and 6/4 rhythms of "Kompromat" - a dance hit for our paranoid apocalyptic age. "Ghost Loads" concludes the set with a folktronic melding of spooky beats and finger-picked acoustic guitar out of the Bert Jansch/Nick Drake tradition. All intimations of what is to come in future ITLM releases.
