So i just listened to this for about 6 plays in a row and I have to say - horns just make me want to make love to strangers. I love the ****ing hell out of this song.

Hey Steve,

Welcome to MusicBanter. Any standout tracks on the EP you'd recommend?

I like the horns on that track too. Makes me want some ska.

Sounds good - like Mumford & Sons + Florence and the Machine + Ska brass section.

Nice pick.

What a piece of ****, let-down this album was. This is only on the first run-through mind you but holy lord, its like an art-concept album if the "artist" was really into bad puppet shows.

The call and response comes off as comically foreboding and the music is attempting to be moody and atmospheric by being sparse...and it sucks. Huge disappointment.

Not only is this song good, but the entire album is fantastic. There are so many good songs on the album that I am not even sure that this one is in the top three. If you liked Little Talks, you need to get the album. Very much worth it.

Really? I don't think it was that bad lol

Little Talks is waaay above everything else on the album, sure, but I still think the album deserves a 6/10 or so.
