The A side, "Wedding", blends together the quirky synthetic sounds of Of Montreal and the distinct vocals of the Klaxons making this track a piece of raucous DIY charm, defining Munch Munch's sound. As the EP progresses complex sounds move into pop ditties in the form of "Endolphins" which starts with jingle synths.
Like Architecture in Helsinki, Munch Munch manages to add an element of funk to proceedings making this track more palatable to the uneducated listener. It is as hypnotic as Steve Reich-esque patterns play counterpoint to old school Neptunes style breakdowns. To end this delectable slice of musical initiative is "Wet Nightmare" - the shortest track on the single but by no means the least. Like a Christmas song on speed, it runs at you and grabs your attention before ending in a crescendo of artificial gusto.
