A requisite for a solid 4 star album is basically 5 must-hear tracks, and all 5 of these tracks are must-hear. The songs on this EP really bring together the feeling of a complete multi-layered album.
The first track is clearly from "Terror Twilight" so it brings that vibe to the table. "Harness Your Hopes" is a fun rockin' track among Pave's best that you could find on "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain", or "Brighten the Corners", and recorded around the same time as BTC. "Roll With the Wind" actually sounds like it could have been off the Preston School of Industry (Spiral Stairs's post-Pave project), although it is probably better than anything that actually was done by PSOI. The last two tracks were from another session, that Malkmus produced himself and this sounds entirely like the Stephem Malkmus solo stuff. "The Porpoise and the Hand Grenade" especially, which is very good.
Good stuff. Find it. Trust me, it can be done.
