?This Song/That Song? is a schizophrenic EP that is saved by one half of the collaboration. The playful vocals and impressionistic lyrics of Yoko Kikuchi provide a sharp contrast to the contributions of Casey Holford. Whereas Kikuchi?s ?This Song,? and ?The Morning Dumb? are evocative and brooding, Holford?s ?Side on a Screen? and ?That Song? are mostly math-pop with no chewy center. They are fun, but you are still hungry later; there?s not as much ?there? there. Yet both members of Dream Bitches have their moments in this breezy pop postcard.
Mostly accompanying themselves on guitar, with some bass and atmospherics drifting through the arrangements, each bring a sense of fun and confidence to the set. While it seems that Yoko Kikuchi has more to bring lyrically, all of the tracks on ?This Song/That Song,? hers and Holford?s, have tasty moments that ought to satisfy. 8/10 -- Mike Wood (11 March, 2008)
