Red Jacket Mine first popped up on my radar early last year with the release of stellar full-length “Someone Else’s Cake.” I was immediately taken with the Seattle-based outfit’s power-pop sound that paid tribute to the British pub-rock movement of the 1970s.

Red Jacket Mine CDFrontman Lincoln Barr and his mates — now a four-piece with Eric Bryson joining holdovers Andrew Salzman and Daniel Walker — are back and better than ever with new EP “Pure Delight.” The six-track release couldn’t have a more fitting title, as Red Jacket Mine continue their recent string of success.

There isn’t a clunker to be found on the 19-minute short-player, but pay extra close attention to the set-opening title track, “I Want You to Worship Me,” the gospel-tined gem “Crow” (featuring Shane Tutmarc), “Nearly Marjorie” and “Get Paid.” If you haven’t yet discovered the music of Red Jacket Mine, now’s the time to remedy that.
