8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 May 2014
This record is for lonely sad people who need something good to listen to", Ezra Furman explains on the back cover of this new 45. On side A we get 'My Zero' which is a nice bit of power-pop with some boldly parping sax and simple, catchy hooks. A little bit John Hughes, a little bit Kelley Stoltz, a little bit Big Star; there's no denying it's super catchy and has a kind of wistful nostalgic charm to it, plus there's some pretty fun sax squawking at the end.   'Caroline Jones' is on the other side and this one doesn't have any sax. It's kind of a tropical shuffle with complete with a dinky-sounding piano, whistling and a kind of cutesy vocal delivery that I'm not really sure about. I think it's about regressing to his schooldays so I'm assuming the childlike delivery is deliberate but it's a bit irritating. The tune itself is pretty catchy though, with a wandering bassline and crisply percussive guitar chords giving it a bit of a late '70s Elvis Costello strut. Decent quirky guitar pop.
