H oundsblood, a distant relative, spends his time sniffing the backsides of singles in search of something new. And this single set his tail a-wagging for the inclusion of “Umbrella Man,” a tune that (to the best of his limited knowledge) might not be sniffed in any other quarters. Unlike the tense, dense pop that typified their recent adventures, “Umbrella Man” is a throwback to the disarming Something/Anything days. Should Todd decide to revisit it on his own some day, it could be a chestnut. As for “Set Me Free,” it’s identical to the elpee version, so no surprises there. FYI, I’m pretty sure Kasim Sulton sings “Set Me Free,” but “Umbrella Man” has me stumped for now.
