USA, 1982, jangle pop

R.E.M.Chronic Town

What a wonderful little EP I had no idea about! Clear, jangly opening that is the sonic embodiment of R.E.M. from the very first note. The only song I knew going into this one was “Gardening at Night”, though I’d not heard this live version. So much bouncy, creative energy from beginning to end.
