TOM THUMB’S NEW E.P.s

I compared last year’s Tom Thumb to Clem Snide, and the same could be said for this year’s EP, “Creatures to Feed.”  But not this year’s “Faux Romantic.”

Tom Thumb has dropped two EPs that could have easily been an A-side and B-side of an album: Side one, Creatures to Feed, is a gentle collection of acoustic songs about faith and love. Acoustic guitar, a little piano and vocals.  Faux Romantic sounds a lot like it’s name: It’s also gentle, but it’s all keyboard, and it’s got overdubs and echo and all kindsa studio devices designed to make mood.  All that, with a Cyndi Lauper cover.

Oh, and if I were to compare the Faux Romantic to anyone, I’d say it sounds like Paul Simon.  Covering Clem Snide.

Seriously, though, great stuff.
