4 stars An excellent EP released by Russian indie/art rock band iamthemorning showcases how improved (if not 'perfected', counting the fact that they already have been pretty much close to perfection) were the musicians' skillz since their debut work, ~, giving a slight wiev on what's going to be on their much awaited second LP, as well as showing some nice alternative versions of tracks from their debut LP.

'Miscellany' EP consists of seven tracks, with four of them were newly recorded in the studio, two unplugged versions, which were recorded live in London at July 2013, and a new mix of 'touching', one of the brightest highlights of their debut recording.

All new stuff is virtually follows the mellow and heartfelt style of their previous work, although some notable differences in sound are very audible. Live interpretation of 'scotland' lacks the loud part, which was heavily reworked, and, instead of it, we're getting a nice alternative version, a very quiet an beautiful one. 'touching' remix sounds much cleaner than on their debut LP, giving a more airy feel into it.

Overall, 'airy' is probably the right word to describe this EP. It's soft, beautiful and atmospheric on all counts. Very emotional, with extremelly subtle, almost ethereal ambience and medlodies. Even more airy and more subtle than ~.

8.5/10. Looking forward the second LP very much.
