I used to think that Boyracer were the best indie-pop band in the world, and I still don't think I was too far off. I love how most of the best Boyracer songs seem to explode when they get to the chorus, and how Stewart almost always sings the beginning of each verse like he's already in the middle of it. Anyway, this is a one-sided 12" EP in another impossibly limited pressing from the always unreliable Blackbean and Placenta Tape Club, as sort of a companion to the 7" version which was released in Germany around the same time by Turntable Friend. Three almost perfect pop songs here, all at about 1:20 each-- what could be better than that?
"Your Unspoken Desires"
"I Can't Hold Onto Anything Worthwhile"
