The rest of the EP isn't quite the Ibiza vacation that "Weekend" promises, but "TV Dream" continues the trend of blazing new paths through his established sound. Featuring the permanently blurry voice of Clive Tanaka, the twinkling starscape is interrupted by steamrolling drums that blast through from the periphery, as if Patterson suddenly decided to turn it into a house track halfway through.
The EP's back end lacks the populist bent of the first half, focusing more on the contemplative side of Groundislava. The winner is "Tower Jump Suicide," which connects the dots between a lazily arcing arpeggio and the same silvery streams of synth that overtake "TV Dream." Meanwhile "Salt of Love" is low-resolution boogie, two-dimensional melodies inflated with bumpy basslines, and "Reflecting" taps into his well-used vein of nostalgia, throwing some choppy hip-hop drums underneath for good measure. It's not quite the reinvention that "Weekend" hints at, but it's certainly a step forward.
