Flooded woodshed

You wait a decade for a new Oval track, & suddenly a near-century of them floods out...

What with Oh & O & now this freebie Ringtone EP Thrill Jockey bestowed on the world yesterday - after all, when you've got a legendary artist on your hands who's knocking out 70-track double albums in his self-reinventive fecundity, why settle for single giveaways? Go a much wholer hog with a pinging/twanging octet of the things, plus a mysterious extra extra (School Trails) that is indisputably of a piece with the rest of the often glittering new Popp - this talk of a second debut, the fruit of years of 'woodshedding' ("O, named for a new beginning, (ground zero if you will)"), begins to really resonate...
