Walter Benjamin, member of the renewed Goodbye Toulouse, expounds in his debut EP a handful of 4 songs of a touching and sensitive beauty from which the opening track easily stands out. Like Jackson Pollock is a sweet song with a Folk movement that retraces the aesthetic of the 60s and 70s. But in this EP there is also place to some experimentalism, never forgetting the purpose of the song, through the use of samples and manipulations of daily life objects and noises. Here is a small appetizer with the promise that Walter Benjamin will soon come back.

01. Like Jackson Pollock
02. God On Our Street
03. Look What They've Done
04. Game Over
