A new Mexican Kids At Home EP begins with The Canal Swan Song, which is a silly little nursery rhyme thing played on primitive instruments and is rather good for it. No Eyed Deers features tweedly keyboards and indie punk guitar stabs, with a shambling Wreckless Eric spirit. One Day Older Than Today is sawing indie folk; it’s a lovely campfire singalong. Animal Shells is banjo time, circulating banjos providing a spiky bed for some sweet boy/girl vocals. It never comes to winsome, but just wonderfully affecting. Mexican Kids At Home evidently have many strings to their bow, so they should be treasured and followed avidly.
