Following the release of the artistically daring and critically-acclaimed Similes earlier this year, we're proud to present The Motion Makes Me Last EP, the scarcely limited companion CDEP to the equally rare Leaves Eclipse The Light EP. In addition to the stately ambient pop title track, The Motion Makes Me Last EP features three brand new, previously unreleased non-album tracks. "Crash Deconstructed" is a melancholy keyboard-based instrumental that's equal parts Sigur Ros and Hill Street Blues; "Remnant Signals" matches the elegant, otherwordly beauty of Eluvium's most striking ambient instrumentals; and closing this collection is a reworking of the Similes cut "Leaves Eclipse The Light" by Nick Zammuto from the Books that's as much a cover as it is a remix - and every bit as charming, beautiful and unique as you'd expect from the Books. Strictly limited to 2,000 copies and featuring an exquisite custom die-cut cover, we don't expect these to stick around for very long.
