As you may have guessed by now this EP sounds like a little bunch of tracks taken from an electronic '80s movie soundtrack score. Certainly something that fans of such music will enjoy, although to my ears it starts out with the stronger tracks and tapers off, particularly with the ska-inspired Head Cleaner which gets my vote for the EP's clanger.
Favorite track: Chase (Freeze, Sucka).
From Mrs. T...
...oh look, it's a little bear...
...oh boy...look at Mommy, Andrew...
...oh boy! oh boy, oh boy!

classic release from the golden age of synthwave (2008-2014, something like that!), the passion and love that went into this album is totally obvious.. the early retrowave releases hold a special place in my ❤, and now we have a new album finally!! Shane Dangers
