As this EP for Public Release shows, Earth Boys are experts at creating cosmic house music. It's no coincidence that they are putting out music on the Californian imprint or that their small catalogue also features a record for Canadian space cadets 1080p. Fittingly, the title track is a dreamy, teased out break beat affair that grooves along just below the 120 bpm mark. Featuring stoned vocal samples and tropical textures, it sets the tone for the release. "Big Time" is more direct, but it resounds to dreamy chimes and a loose rhythm, while on "Put me On" has a tighter backing track without forsaking Earth Boys' deep approach. Finally, "Highway 1" brings the listener back to where they started with a jazz sax-infused breaker that conjures up images of marine drives and summer sunsets along the US West Coast.
