This follow-up EP to Broken Bells' acclaimed debut gives hope that the pairing between Brian Burton and James Mercer was not just a one-off fling. Most of the tracks here seem almost heavy compared to anything on Broken Bells. "Meyrin Fields" gradually intensifies as Mercer's coos dodge lasers from another planet; "Windows" is an ominous guitar stomper; "An Easy Life" swirls like a tilt-a-whirl, distorted vocals included; and "Heartless Empire" sounds like Mercer hiding out in a cave as a UFO lands. In other words, Broken Bells remain one of indie pop's more out-there duos.
