Truant Wave (EP)

Fall Out Boy's semipermanent vacation has left frontman Patrick Stump with a lot of pent-up creativity. He seems to be struggling to get a thousand ideas out at once on this EP, made up of leftovers from the forthcoming LP Soul Punk. Mostly, Stump explores a post-emo club-pop style, dispensing wry aphorisms and sleazy come-ons ("Feeling woozy, not a floozy, but the booze makes her less choosy") on top of over-caffeinated synth loops. The results are a bit unruly: Does Stump know who he wants to be outside his old band? Maybe not, but hearing him try to figure it all out can be pretty fun.
