PMtoday In Medias Res
The intro to Don't Exist puts the biggest smile on my face. The song is a journey with its themes of changing as life progresses, Beatles references, and 5/4 chants. The fact that it all comes together so coherently is amazing. Don't Exist functions as a sort of anthem for everything In Medias Res is trying to accomplish, making it the perfect centerpiece. The album clocks in just under 40 minutes and yet, I feel like they accomplish so much with their beautiful passages, lively guitar lines, and heartfelt and honest vocals. These lyrics paint such a hopeless picture that strangely is complimented, or rather countered by music as bright

It's amazing how Connector made this one of my favorite bands. This EP is what I expected Brent's solo LP to be. I think the electronic thing in Miss Erray could have been fleshed out a bit more (yet it's still good) and Slow Dancing Forever, although nice was clearly inferior to the original (which is unfortunate since that's one of my favorites). Still, The Hound and The Fox's jazz arrangement is brilliant and Andrew's Song is beautiful. Playing Catch With .22 was good too with my only gripe being that the last part from the original song was left out. Overall a very cool idea and I hope they expand on these style's in the future.
