Speaker Speaker’s latest EP, the follow-up to 2005’s Again & Again & Again, contains a lot of bounce and pop. The trio of Colin McBride, Danny Oleson and Jasen Samford start in fourth gear and keep the momentum there with a power pop gem which is quite rare for a four-minute tune. And this continues on with much the same passion and chops for “Loveland, CO”, an extremely tight, crisp and polished ditty. Two live tracks also grace this effort, again with no letting up in the intensity or urgency with the gorgeous “Call it Off” before the vocals get a tad emo and scream-tinged. The only song that doesn’t quite measure up to these ideals is “Radio Days” which, despite clocking in at two minutes, seems to be the tamest of the lot. But even this tune hooks you in with a guitar-crazed bridge. The only problem here is it’s just an EP, dammit. “Do You Still Hate Me?” closes this impressive 18-minute jaunt, one which you would be wise, oh so wise to seek out.
