BLOOD BLUSH: Trust: CS

I’m super into this bite-sized, four-song cassette by New York darkwave trio Blood Blush. Trust perfectly straddles the line between drama and chill, with disarmingly beautiful melodies delicately traipsing on top of a relentlessly thudding rhythm section. Sounding kind of like a mesh of Interpol and Bauhaus, this post-punk outfit makes me wanna paint the world black. It’s past Christmas, but you should still buy a copy to stuff in an unsuspecting friend’s sock. Do your part—Make America Goth Again. -Simone Carter (Flesh & Bone, fleshandbonerecords@gmail.com, fleshandbonerecords.com)
