The prog quartet formerly known as How To Operate Your Brain made one wise decision by changing their name to something much less clunky and a second one by recording this polished EP of five songs that thrum with a passionate vitality. The rush of isolated vocal harmonies on "Concrete" is a standout. Listen to the entire EP on bandcamp.
