Yet another winner found its way to the MMM-MMMP3s inbox ([email protected])! Breakfast in Fur combine the intimate weirdness of Quilt with the public grandeur of Arcade Fire. The preponderance of unplugged instrumentation gives the album a real earthy feel, while the synths and samples on tracks like "A Quiet Place" and "Flying Saucers" reach for the stratosphere. Their self-titled EP is pretty flawless: a haunting essay into pine tree tremolo, sun-burned synth, forest-gaze, folk-core. I’ll give a shout out to the "High Hopes" cover for being a crackerjack reinterpretation – cute without being cutesy – but I’ve got to put the spotlight on "Shine" for this post. The song rises like the morning sun somewhere around the middle of the EP. Quiet, purposeful, warming up the sonic landscape, burning away the dew, and delivering you into the frightful majesty of the day like a newborn baby taking its first few breaths of sweet and terrible freedom.

Download the entire EP at Bandcamp, say hi on Facebook, and if you still like Myspace they’re on that too. Enjoy!
