Portland's The Miracles Club keep up their reverent homage to classic house music with "I Can't Help It," suffused in overdubbed piano chords and faintly squelchy synth bass; as with previous work, it stands at a wispy remove from its vintage inspiration, with Honey Owens' breathy quaver tracing curlicues in the space between then and now. It's decidedly not the real thing—more like a copy of a copy of a half-remembered thing—but it's neither kitschy nor twee. Between punchy bass and crisp sense of swing, it's probably the closest that The Miracles Club have come to their ideal.
New York's Ulysses closes out the EP with "Soular Power," a super-slo-mo slice of synth disco. It's of a piece with tracks like Burger/Voigt's "Wand Aus Klang (Partial Arts' Finsbury-Tamarama Psych Extension)" and Space Dimension Controller's "Simmering Emotion," tracks that dial down the disco impulse as though from 45 to 33. Like the Partial Arts remix, "Soular Power" fills in the spaces with synthesizers dripping with Krautrock bombast; it looks east, to India, for its bells and twanging strings, while a touch of talk box rounds out the trance-inducing picture.
