MODERN CREATURES: Thick Thick Black: 7”

When I listen to this, I get two images in my head. The first is of me being miserable in some club lit by neon while everybody else is dancing. The other is of some kid who went to art school thinking about whether Duchamp or Dali is more impressive, but by the second year was thinking about whether smoking cloves or American Spirits is more impressive. This 7” is mildly goth and dance-y, mildly dark and punk, and mildly experimental and annoying. It’s just mild.
