A brief glimpse of his songwriting range before he heads off to record a new album, the mini-album Time of Dust finds Ed Harcourt moving between ornate romantic balladry (“The Saddest Orchestra (It Only Plays for You)”), Calexico-themed trip-hop (“Time of Dust”) and, best of all, a theatrically eerie nocturne that curls around the listener like tendrils of smoke (“Come into My Dreamland”).
