I actually came across this album on Spotify and listened to it on a whim. Even though I already own "Conditions" (2009) and "The Temper Trap" (2012), I had no idea this album existed until I got the chance to listen to it free, and now I will be buying it immediately. (There's probably a lesson in there somewhere for the record companies, but I digress).

"Acoustic Sessions" is reminiscent of the 90's trend where heavy rock/alternative bands would do an "Unplugged" album with acoustic instruments. In a roundabout sort of way, it sort of works with indie rock groups too, since there's a lot of electronica and post-production that goes into their music, but, fundamentally, most great songs can be boiled down to "three chords and the truth".

"Acoustic Sessions" surprised me by how much I liked the stripped-down version of these songs. If there's one criticism I would have of their first two albums, it's that a lot of songs sounded kind of similar, almost as if they were in the same key and rolled into one another. This album was a nice mixture of pieces from both albums, and they took on new life with the guitar and vocals isolated. Actually, I hear a lot of similarities with The Antlers now (check out "Hospice" if you haven't already), which is a GOOD thing.

I'm not always a fan of bands re-releasing old songs on EP, but this is actually a nice addition to the collection.
