Title track "Morningstar in a Black Car" is typical moody synthpop, borderline formulaic especially in its chorus structure and while this particular track doesn't float my boat, there is still plenty of earcandy to enjoy. Energy pill "World Coming Down" for instance, a three minute club explosion destined for the electro dancefloors. Not to mention "Spiders", for which there is also a reasonably creative video included, where Hagström's vocals can truly blossom.
The remixes I can take or leave. Solidly executed in slightly different styles (among the remixers are Unterart and Agonoize), but little can be improved upon. The exception is spelled Marsheaux, a current Greek favourite that always leaves an impression with their peculiar electro sounds and retro imagery.
The "Morningstar in a Black Car" EP is a strong continuation of the power of Ashbury Heights and if they cultivate their advantages, there will be no stopping them.
