REM meets Pavement to me...tracks you must have (for post punk / power pop / melody lovers) = "Yeah Right," and "Tell Me What You Want."

They Say All Music Guide

In the ’80s, college towns all across both the United States and England suddenly sprouted bands that took the urgency of punk and post-punk music and married it to music that was altogether more polite and inviting, featuring catchy, jangly guitars and artless, naïve vocals. A few of these bands went on to bigger things — you might have heard of a couple little bands called R.E.M. and the Smiths — but most of them lasted for a couple of singles, maybe an EP, occasionally a full album, before breaking up when the bass player decided to go back to his chemistry degree. A similar fate might befall Human Television, a quartet from the Southern college town of Gainesville Florida, which would be a shame. This EP’s worth of short, tuneful songs featuring (mostly) rushed tempos and (always) chiming guitar lines and vocals that dance right on the edge of off-key is a shambling mess, in the most endearing way possible. The minimalist lyrics of songs like “Saw You Walking By” (“Saw you walking by the other day/I said hey…hey hey hey-hey”) and “Tell Me What You Want” (two sets of lyrics sung over each other three times in a row) fit their invitingly offhand melodies to a tee, and every one of these songs is a miniature marvel of rackety indie pop. The white-vinyl 12″ edition includes one song not found on the CD. – Stewart Mason
