Boomkat Product Review:
Lifted from the My Life In Rooms album, Barzin's 'Just More Drugs' might seem like a strange choice for single. It might be a little more uptempo than usual (well, these things are all relative) but it lacks some of the sheer heartbreaking romance that characterises the finest Barzin songs. Still a lovely song of course, but you'll be glad of the other EP tracks, including lovely new song 'Queen Jane', a Tindersticks cover ('Mistakes' as captured at a Canadian radio station) and two beautiful Resonance FM session recordings of 'Let's Go Driving' and 'Just More Drugs', the latter being one of those rare examples of a radio session being of considerably higher production values than the album version upon which it is based. As ever with Barzin, the songs are unwaveringly sad, and of steadfastly high quality.
