Possibly the last great EP from indie stalwarts Lush. Taken from the Spooky album; the title track is a lovely piece of standard fare, but the rest of the EP is a blinder. It includes an early version of Starlust, Miki Berenyi’s vocals sound not as assertive as the version that appears on Split. This gives the song very sweet and twee vocals, contrasted to sassy powerful guitars.
Outdoor Miner is a bold cover of the post-punk Wire classic. Admittedly the original is a melodic accessible piece, and not as Oi! as some of their other tracks. Lush take Outdoor Miner and make it warm and feminine . The last track Astronaut is a whimsical atmospheric delight, gossamer delicate vocals loosely held together with guitar riffs.
