This "vinyl-iscious" EP contains 4 songs that fuse rock, hip hop, roots music and rhythm and blues (a style Bret playfully calls "vinyl shit") in the tradition of Beck, Fatboy Slim and The Sneaker Pimps.
Despite their unique display of crafty beats and hybrid production styles, these are also focused songs in which lyrical content and melody have not at all been sacrificed.
As usual, you'll hear some of Bret's Stones and Bowie influences with an added nod to G. Love and Sublime on "Birthday Cake" which was written with and features singer/songwriter Frankie Hernandez. "You Show Yourself", co-authored by Frankie and long time collaborator Robert Navarro also features Frankie's distinct vocal stylings and Robert's help on guitar, bass and clarinet.
