    These four songs fulfill expectations for minimalist, rhythm-based deconstructions of genre. [Feb 2010, p.93]

    As usual, though, Willett also tries to showcase his brainpower, clumsily referencing works most commonly studied in AP literature....But the four-song EP is perfectly short; if you focus on the sturdy tunes and ignore the pseudo-smartness, it's plenty sweet, too.

    With Behave Yourself, maturation means shaving off all those jagged edges that made the work so appealing in the first place. [Holiday 2009, p.82]

    Sounds great on vinyl. I especially like "Audience." Maybe not one of my favorite EPs ever, but it will definitely get lots of play (already has).

If only they had put solid tracks like "Coffee Spoon" and "Audience" on their last LP. Full Review »
