Jaguar Love: Jaguar Love [Matador EP, 2008]
This three-song skyrocket of an EP begins with the opener and closer of the pained, poetic album it renders a luxury instead of proving a necessity. With a reformed Blood Brother shrieking his mad visions like Kathleen Hanna on Halloween and a Pretty Girls Make Graves guy overseeing the hooky noise-punk, it's like riot grrrl turned into a style after its surprise factor played out. The non-album track shouldn't have been. It's about one Townes Van Zandt fan ditching another in a Spanish train station after the ditchee tells him he's knocked her up.
