The title track of The First Part EP is pulled from 1993's full-length Foolish, and, like "Connecticut," is a driving, hyper-kinetic gem full of shifting dynamics and pent-up tensions. The last song on the album, however, is both a departure from Superchunk's signature sound and a fantastic reworking of a theme, as the band crafts a danceable, feedback-drenched masterpiece along the lines of My Bloody Valentine. At the heart of "Foolish" is the hypnotic riff that kicks off "Like a Fool," an endlessly repeating guitar line underneath which a programmed house beat provides a driving, pulsing rhythm. The enigmatic lyrics are buried in the mix, almost completely obscured by the waves of distortion that lend the song its texture. The end result is both haunting and exciting, sure to reverberate in the listener's head for days, and makes this EP a must-have for Superchunk fans.
