Cornershop are an unusual hybrid of Indian music and British indie-pop that caught the public’s ear in the mid-‘90s. Their eclectic tastes guaranteed sonic surprises that made them easy favorites for a diverse crowd of fans. Hints of Flaming Lips, Beastie Boys, Beck, and the Beatles can be discerned with serious listening. However, while the group serve as a “high art” edition of commonplace pop music, there is still great silly fun to be had. This 2010 EP slides all over the place. “Houston Hash” is a nicely crafted piece of country-rock with a pulsing beat and a devious synthesizer slipping its way past security. “Lynndie England” follows that same path, with a sedate instrumental passage that is in complete opposition to the tracks sandwiched in between. “The Battle of New Orleans” was recorded at the request of legendary BBC disc jockey John Peel. “Soul School” is a funky remix of the track from their previous album, Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast.
