"Dan Friel's first release for Thrill Jockey, contains two brand new songs, as well as the first ever remixes of his music. 'Valedictorian' opens the EP with a burst of adrenaline, pure pop filtered through a layer of noise. 'Exoskeleton' is more mysterious, with bursts of Friel's over-driven synths coming in and out of focus over a steady 4/4 beat. The first remix is a clean, Italo disco take on 'Exoskeleton' courtesy of Moss of Aura, the solo project of Gerrit Welmers, one third of Future Islands. The final track is a sprawling, murky remix of 'Ulysses,' by California dub-kraut duo Peaking Lights."
