Review by Warthur
4 stars This intriguing release - one of two EPs eventually compiled in the collection also confusingly called Remote Luxury, and which bridge the gap between Seance and Heyday - finds the Church roving a bit further from their jangle pop centre of gravity, undertaking wider-ranging stylistic explorations than they'd allowed themselves on their studio albums up to this point whilst still existing in the same jangle pop/post-punk/new wave/neo-psychedelia demimonde they'd staked out for themselves. Once again, the Church would demonstrate themselves as deft crafters of melancholic arthouse pop in a distinctly 1980s style, and whilst this isn't quite on the level of the albums preceding or succeeding it, it's still worth a listen (by itself or combined with Persia on the compilation release).
