Slanted has angst to spare on "Desire for Lust"

Desire for Lust is the soundtrack for a night alone in your bedroom when it all hits you. It’s the music that kicks in after a slammed door and holds your hand while you walk home in the rain. There’s a sense of catharsis here, but Slanted is anything but enchanted. As the title suggests, there’s a sense of longing that carries this EP. Not even a longing, but a longing for a longing, a want to want, an unfulfilled wish to look forward to something.

Fortunately for the rest of us, the age of instant gratification means you won’t be stuck longing helplessly for this record, which is embedded below. -Austin Phy

Regatta drops meditative debut EP

John Hughes is dead and gone, but the unshakeable melancholy of growing up is stronger than ever. Your dusty old VHS of The Breakfast Club doesn’t even have to leave the shelf to stand as a potent symbol of nostalgia and the loss that comes with the passing of time. Evan Hickman, the man behind Regatta, might or might not have any physical VHS tapes on his shelf, but he has a few figurative ones lodged in his spirit. His debut self-titled EP is a quick listen, clocking in at a snack-sized eight minutes with songs like sound-sketches, but what’s here is worth checking out.

The existential disenchantment is going to hit you one way or another, so you’d best just lean into it and hit the stream below. -Austin Phy

Let it flow with Soft Bodies, see them live 01.30

The debut EP by Soft Bodies is a record in constant motion. Not motion like a freight train barreling down the line or an airplane dipping and diving through the clouds, but motion like something more organic and common to us all. It pulses, it waves, it flows, and when it skips a beat and jumps right for you, it’s both startling and beautiful. Though the tracks here range from laid back 90’s house fare (in the best way possible) to funky-as-it-gets, they move as smoothly from one to the next as they do from verse to chorus.

Catch Soft Bodies this Saturday (01.30) at Cafe Coco and pick up a free copy of the EP while you're there. -Austin Phy

UZi gets down and dirty on debut EP

“Excuse me,” the disgusted-looking girl on the cover seems to be saying, “but who the fuck do you think you are?” Disgust is the word of the day when it comes to describing Sc’UZI, debut EP from local boys UZi. They’re disgusted, they’re mad, and they’re ready to have a good time with it—all while being as loud and raucous as they can. That said, these guys didn’t get so caught up in a feeling that they forgot to put on that final layer of polish. This a sleek effort, and the perfect vibe to keep your spirits up on a snowy day like today.

Check out the stream below, pick up a tape, and blast it 'til the neighbors complain. --Austin Phy
