Cold Pumas are a new name to me with this being their first release for new label Hungry for Power. This 12" EP features two tracks from the group which are then remixed on the B-side. First track 'Jela' is a jammed out, upbeat Krautrock number with some interesting little bits of trickery going down. It's too fast to be a Jesus and Mary Chain number but it sounds to me like gothic shoe-gazing indie rock that would just about survive the dancefloor. I'm totally down with the guitars and the Falsetto vocal line. 'A Tempting Haunt' is more of a slow burner with a monotonous guitar stab leading the melody throughout. Much more morose than the opener it sounds like early Gang of Four at its most dynamic though it doe's have a lot in common with Health. Again, the guitars are really cool on this track. The remix of 'Jela' goes by the name of Murlo's Caribbean Twist Rework. It's pumped up caribbean rhythms supplemented with small chunklets of the original tune. It sounds pretty mental but I'm still enjoying it's daftness. A deliberate attempt to bring some joy and caribbean sunshine to an otherwise bleak indie rock number. The Brassica remix of 'A Tempting Haunt' takes the cool Gang of Four drumbeat and runs with it transforming this downbeat track into a bastardized tribute to 'Supercars II' on the Amiga. Electro synth-lines dominate the mix and take it as far from the original number with reckless abandon and joy.
