4-track EP recorded, reportedly, while the group all had the flu. Three new cuts carry a more live-in-the-studio feel, with a freaked out violin solo shooting the strongest track, "These Are Blues," into experimental orbit. The B-side is taken up by two #1 remixes; a bubbly Sabres Of Paradise mix of "Indigo" and acid jazz mainstay Nobakuza Takemura's dust-free take on "Seashell." As usual, the Astralwerks version (titled simply "These Are Blues") plays around with the track listing, dropping the admittedly throwaway "Red Light, Blue Light" and subbing a different mix of "Blues."
