Another part of the flurry of 2004 releases from John Frusciante, DC EP contains four low-key songs produced by Fugazi's Ian Mackaye at Washington, D.C.'s Inner Ear, all of which feature drumming from Fugazi associate Jerry Busher. It would've been more practical to include a couple of the better songs on one of the several full-lengths put out during the year. It's all raw, unfussy, deceptively off-center, off-the-cuff material, little different in feel from the majority of his other 2004 releases. On the slight side and not essential, but not a throwaway, it does feature "A Corner" -- one of Frusciante's best songs to date.
