The London EP – The Isthmus

Al RitchieAn addendum to the Madison elctronauts' impressive sophmore CD, A Million Different Moments, this burn-your-own EP offers smart reconstructions of three album originals, including an expertly textured swoon-dance mix by Texas synthpop maves Iris. Null Device's obsessive love of bhangra rhythms is emphasized – alongside some lovely synth patches – on two disparate mixes of “Walk in London,” as well as a club-ready Hungry Lucy update of “Travelogue.”

Most intriguing, perhaps is the all-acoustic arrangement of “Walk…” It may feel mildly gimmicky at first, but it proves a song this well-written and poignant can stand on its own with nary a wave oscilaltor in sight.
