John Cale is releasing an EP this week titled Extra Playful, available on heavyweight 12” vinyl and download via Domino Records. Extra Playful is intended to showcase John Cale as a master producer, songwriter and orchestrator. Poetic lyrics border on playful, avant-garde turns to pop music, and experimental proto-punk becomes accessible.

So how did it turn out? Check out the video for 'Whaddya Mean By That' above ... there's a distinct Americana vibe, albeit in a slightly warped way. Slight psychedelics figure into the traditional pop song structure, and even a small does of (almost) country music. The temperament of age.
