about

Having already covered US underground indie rock band Neutral Milk Hotel's track "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" we felt there was merit in looking at other American indie rock music to make an EP from. The challenge was then narrowing down the field to four songs only, and along the way discounting many many seminal bands and tracks.

We chose Sugar, Daniel Johnston, The Throwing Muses as our other three bands and then (breaking our own rules) added a fifth track in Jim O'Rourke's own re-interpretation of a track by Ivor Cutler. The musical palate of this track, "Women Of The World" has long been a source of inspiration and the lush arrangement of plucked guitars, glock and strings, with our own harmonium, omnichord and multi layered vocals from Katie and Cara, crystalised the experience of making this EP.
