Todd Kray A perfect EP....4 fantastic songs. I love that Flying Nun keeps at least some of their huge catalogue alive in digital versions of the original configurations. For me, it helps give some context to what the music sounded like at the time it was originally released (as opposed to a great song -there are so very many from FN- being part of a box set, etc). Would love to see some of the early comps made available this way as well (Tuatara, Dunedin Double, Roger Sings...., Wendy Broccoli, etc)

vb as fantastic as anything that came out of this pocket/genre/era. how this hasn't been licensed for some movie's soundtrack already I cannot understand. I feel soaring joy when I listen to it. Favorite track: Straight Through My Heart.
