Shake off that winter rust, cause here is the soundtrack to all your spring days filled with shaking your booty and funking til the rise of dawn. Well maybe Wally and the boys haven't gone funk but this is one grrrroooooo-vee ep. No, this is not a dance EP, but it is that rare rokk and roll record that just makes you tap your toes, move your hips, and flap your lips as you sing Wally/Kurt's seriously non-profound lyrics.  The Lilys have embraced the idea of being the most sophisticated saccharine pop band on the planet but these songs are not simple slabs of melody, they sound like they are well thought out plans of world domination.  The opener "Hark, An Open Channel" cranks up the guitar and slappy organ and finds Kurt is still in fine Ray Davies form. Track two continues the trek into heroic pop heights, and the whole ep, although lasting a mere 15 minutes, just whips you up into a magnetic frenzy. Errr...well at least it whipped me into a friendly lather.  Get it, sing along to "The Gravity Free Atmosphere of MSA" and think yeah this really is better than the Wallflowers. Groovalicious.
