ERGS!, THE: Jersey’s Best Prancers: 12” EP

I seriously don’t know how they can do it. I’m a bit of a jaded fuck, and I’m getting close to being ready to say that The Ergs! just can’t do wrong by me, but I don’t want to tempt fate. It’d be easy to say that they’re getting better with every release if I didn’t keep going back to The Ben Kweller EP or 3 Guys, 12 Eyes to know that they’ve been this good the whole time. This EP—which starts to venture off from the pop of Dorkrockcorkrod, makes it easier to see how truly talented they are—was released for their tour and limited to 100 copies. These have been gone for quite some time now, but I’ve heard wind that it’s going to be issued again in larger numbers. Do yourself a favor and pick it, or any of their releases, up if you can. I’d also be lying if just having this around didn’t make me pull out Lifetime’s Jersey’s Best Dancers, which, in itself, is reason enough to pick this up.
