[Updated] Nicholas Krgovich enjoys identity games. He records under a number of names, including No Kids, Gigi, and P:ano, and for Christ Mast Style, Chris Mannheim. On the six-song EP, he musically masquerades as The Human League, quoting "Human" in his version of "O Come All Ye Faithful," and he infuses "Children Go Where I Send Thee" with The Pet Shop Boys' beloved wistful melancholy.

Each song adopts a different identity, but all the versions are charming if as circumspect as the references "Mannheim" draws from on the EP, which is currently available for free download through bandcamp.
