“Saw you walking by here just the other day / I said hey, hey hey hey hey”, they sing nonchalantly, as if they hadn’t just written one of the catchiest indie-pop songs since I don’t know when. The rest of the mini-album is made up of similar casual, good-natured tunes, with plenty of warm, strummy guitars, fast, bright melodies, and bouncy beats. They really believe in this music and manage to reach back to the best of college rock’s past without sounding like they’re merely aping the style. It’s one of the best albums of the 80’s that just happened to be released in 2004.
