The EP has all the stripped-down and functional cool of Unsuitable Therapy, Wrong Assessment's only other solo record to date, except it's delivered with a bit more flair here. There was a deviant spirit poking through "Schapoid" on the split Toe Tag EP for Parachute, and here it is again on "Answers." In this case, however, it's a billowing synth line that creeps in around two and a half minutes. Eventually it backs down, but not until it significantly subverts the mood. It's a neat switch compared to, say, the steady, forward swell of "Stapedius."
The record's emotive clout is saved for the close, and "End Of Contemplation" is in every way as melancholy as the title implies. But for those looking for a dance floor track with bite, "Uncinate" is the standout. It's so groovy that it hooks you immediately, then a lovely melodic squiggle kicks in to finish the job. After one listen, you'll feel like you've known it a lifetime.
