XUB SAFARI: MMXV: Cassette

There’s a layer of natural fuzz over this EP and the songs are mid-paced and short and upbeat and feel like expanses of summer nights after quick thunderstorms or cool fall days and having to put on a jacket. Faintest hint of shoegaze, thought they don’t slow down enough and don’t seem obsessed with pedals. Hazy but fast, I guess. Not sure what they’re singing about (vocals are in Spanish). One song title translates to “The New Violence,” another translates to “Worth Nothing.” For the people wearing all black to the beach.
