Pavement had a reputation for being lazy, but I'm not sure if I buy into that; especially seeing as they released so many quality B-sides and showed such dedication to fans. When I first picked up the Spit on A Stranger EP my initial thought was "man, this is better than the album that it's supporting." A little time and a lot of listens changed my mind about Terror Twilight (which is an excellent album) but this is still one of my favorites. Spit on a Stranger was probably Pavement's prettiest single, and it's followed by two excellent numbers which embody the rock-oriented side of Pavement during their final years. The final two tracks are much more experimental; well written songs played like they are demos from a jam session led by a keyboard. Tremendous fun. In short, this consistent EP sums up everything that was great about Pavement; great songs, an experimental ethic and music that really, really rocks.

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.

"Harness Your Hopes" is a must-have, probably the best thing from Pavement's twilight age. "Enslavement" rhymes with Pavement (to Malkmus's mythic sensibility, getting yourself harnessed is the price of not killing off your parents, I guess), but the song is more loose and free-wheeling than anything Malkmus has done since "Starlings on the Slipstream." It reveals his drunkenly prophetic, Mallarmean side to better advantage than anything on Terror Twilight. Even if you were a bit disappointed by that album, get this EP.

Yes. Harness your hopes is the "no tan lines" for this album's single collection. Yes. All the songs are good even if you already own the first one from the album. Yes.
