Across the three tracks, Piers rustles up snarling, sharp-elbowed house. The lead cut, "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Key," may sounds like the title of some Edward Lear nonsense rhyme (to say nothing of the Oliver Sacks classic), but its target is clearly defined. This is a peak-time bullet fired with pinpoint accuracy, with snares that snap your neck back, a generous bass wobble and a warped synth hook.
"TL2" is brawnier still, a marble-tough slab of swinging house with a tech edge. "Thickle" opens with a puppyish bounce and scuttle but is then draped in deliciously warm chords and spluttering toms, bringing to a close a highly accomplished EP. At this rate, the next Laszlo Dancehall record should be quite something.
