Each Other - Heavily Spaced

Each Other are kings of the EP (as were Long Long Long before them (and I suppose, though not entirely related, Voxtrot before them)).  And Heavily Spaced is simply another perfect example.  I'm beginning to wonder if I could even handle a full length record from Each Other.  The band (if you consider its antecendent) has been operating for so long in the realm of pristine, compacted post punk and art-damaged pop that I feel like to extend beyond the formula would short circuit me as a listener, leave me twitching on the ground--overwhelmed by goodness.  As it stands, Each Other is among the last worthwhile indie rock bands, of which Heavily Spaced is a  testament.
