Miskatonic is breaking up soon, but in 2008 they brought us another EP of synth-happy new wave inspired power pop. This three song effort sounds and feels very much like their debut full length, Let Us Entertain Us. If you liked that record, you’ll like this EP.
“Favorite Records” is the standout track. The song is infections, with snappy drums, pop culture references and a sing-along chorus. There’s also some cool interplay between the guitar and keyboard. Vocalist Elizabeth Firger seems more confident on this EP than on Let Us Entertain Us. The darker “Sudden Silence” has a cool ending that works well with the song. “Taunt” closes out the EP, showcasing some nice contrast between the verse and chorus.
