HIGHWAY STACY: Self-titled: CS

Highway Stacy is a Flipper-trained solo project out of Chicago. Bratty, intimidating vocals and steady, droning bass lines are layered over a wall of noise that is surprising, synthy, and complex. My favorite track is the five-minute-long “All You Have” in which you have ample time to sink yourself into Tyler’s noisy tirade. The whole tape feels simultaneously fresh and familiar. –Liz Jones ([email protected], highwaystacy.bandcamp.com)
