Swing Lo Magellan really changed my opinion of this band - Bitte Orca , while an interesting listen with one immediate standout ("Stillness is the Move"), just never clicked with me when it came out. Swing Lo did, though, and I guess the rest of their catalog (or that that I've explored) did as well. Still, I think Swing Lo is their best. And as for this EP, I've only listened once, but the review pretty much nailed my feelings. "While You're Here" is the best song by a long shot, but it's not fleshed out enough to truly great, I think. Definitely a disappointment for me, as Swing Lo is one of my very favorite records of the year.
