first off...dustin ruth is a super nice dude, just so you know
second...considering that anorak came out less than a year ago, is it so bad that an indie band comes out with just a covers ep? i mean, recording can be expensive and they aren't exactly the top selling band from tooth and nail. i think this was just something fun that they wanted to do...house of heroes only did 3 songs on their beatles covers ep. most of your criticism seemed fair and you're a much better writer than i am, i just thought calling them lazy for coming out with an ep instead of a full length to be kinda weak.
The latter part may be true so I can't defend that point. You are totally correct. Also, I think the world of Dustin Ruth. Super awesome guy. Really respect his band. I was just hoping for more from this EP is all.
