Paradise Island

"Get Up" CD EP (Dim Mak)

This EP is short - like seven minutes short. In that sense, it's more than three times better than a male stereotype. In the sense of the music it's on it, I'd prefer to hear more. Erase Errata's Jenny Hoyston put three highly interesting songs on this, ranging from Black Dice noise to old roots and blues-inflected guitars, filled with murmured vocals and sounding like the Young People have at least one comrade in updating older musical styles. Sure, it requires an appreciation of the noisier forms of indie (liking Erase Errata might make for a good starting point), but there's a fair bit here to like.
