(exro.fm) For almost thirty years Stephen and Frances have been the favorite band of anyone who has ever seen them live, as the lovely, infectious, enchantingly beautiful music they create is matched only by their similar adjective-worthy personalities. Recordings by the Oz-dwellers are rare these years, but this exquisite EP proves it is worth the wait. In some ways the songs here are so perfect that I want to make bold comparisons (Stereolab?) or hold this up as their best work and make some kind of absurd declaration about superiority, but rather, I’ll just urge everyone to listen to their smooth, groovy, mellow, deep, basic tune called “Basics” and get into the awesome zone. Awesome, isn’t it?
