Review by TCat
3 stars The 'Wearing Yr Smell' EP was released to promote the single of the same name that originally came from the full album 'Timothy's Monster' (both released in 1994). The EP features that track and also an edited version of 'Leave It Like That' also from that album. It also features 3 songs not available on the regular edition of the album, although they are available on the 4-disc reissue released in 2010. There are 5 tracks with a total running time of around 18 minutes, so the songs on this EP are short, none of them reaching the 5 minute mark.

'Wearing Yr Smell' comes first, and is in the original album version, except that it is mastered differently. It is a good, upbeat song with the trademark stoner rock feel.

'President Block' is original to this EP. It has a great guitar riff and thick bass. The vocals are growly, but retain enough melodic tone to not be considered in the black metal style, but almost. There are harmonies in there also. It is a harder song than the 1st track and a decent song for being an outtake.

'Jr.' is also original to the EP. It has a heavy riff, but with mellower vocals that contrast to the heaviness of the guitar. This gives it a 'Matthew Sweet' or 'Dinosaur Jr.' feel, which isn't a bad thing. Maybe that's why it's called Jr.

'Birds' is the third original track. It has the softer vocals and an acoustic guitar. About half way through, an accordion, or something similar sounding joins in. This one stays quite minimal throughout the track, but is quite a pleasant tune.

'Leave it Like That' is on the LP, but this is in an edited version. It has a little over a minute edited from the original version. It has a driving rhythm and a nice thumping bass. Vocals range from clean to that signature melodic growl. Another good tune, but, as I said, it's cut short.

All in all, this is a good EP, but it is just good, heavy music, nothing really progressive about it. Still, it's rather enjoyable, but the tracks are now available on other sources. It might render the EP obsolete, but it is still worth picking up if you find a cheap used copy somewhere. Even though the tracks are short, they are still well developed songs, especially for B-sides.
