Recorded in one day, the debut by Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, This Heat percussionist Charles Hayward, Spring Heel Jack's John Coxon, and U.K. jazz improviser Pat Thomas eschews exploratory jamming to probe the nuances of Taylor's songs. Unfortunately, those songs are slight, unfocused things. A lovely electric organ buoys the charming "Don't Worry" and the group makes taffy out of deep soul cut and early Terry Riley tape-loop experiment "You're No Good" (stretching it to 11 minutes), but little else lingers.
