AllMusic Review by

For unknown reasons left off Simple Machines' eventual Working Holiday! compilation CD, Bratmobile's entry in the singles series celebrates Asian Heritage Month with "I Love You, You Little Crocodile," a minute of bashing, crashing grrrl-punk sung in Thai by Allison Wolfe -- definitely one of the project's stranger, more awkward moments. Much better is Veronica Lake's dream pop opus "Saints Above," which ostensibly fetes Ascension Day, the Christian feast that heralds Christ's rise to Heaven (although its breathy vocals seem to detail more earthbound pursuits).
