    The guys from Baltimore prove that only two tracks pulled from the same album can be the impetus for limitless creation.

    Standing alongside DeGraw's contribution as an EP standout, Teengirl Fantasy offer an all too brief remix of "Monkey Riches" that takes in analogue house, indie thrash and dreamy Machinedrum-style juke.

    The Shabazz Palaces cut is easily the most interesting song here, and seems to be the one you might still be pulling out once in a while in another six months. Considering that the EP, with three versions of the same song in a row, isn’t really meant to be heard as a whole, getting one truly intriguing track out of it isn’t such a bad deal.

    As a whole the EP doesn’t hit the mark. Not only is the only link between the tracks that they are vaguely related to Animal Collective, but within the tracks themselves there are often many ideas out of context with one another.

    Each artist on Monkey Been to Burntown brings the high-energy movements of Centipede HZ to do their bidding, but the more interesting work is done by those who see their own set of rapidly moving frequencies.
