Welcome to Pure Vanilla, a new five track EP that really captures the band's raw intensity. Tearing past in just over 10 minutes, it's a quick get in, get out, and leave nothing but rubble in their wake kind of approach.
Washington, DC's Dove Lady have already released one of the year's best albums in the form of One, but the band's alphabetical series of EPs must continue and we're thrilled to share the latest installment, E. The series allows the duo to create with complete freedom and without pressure, an ongoing voyage into the depths of their elastic post-punk and experimental creativity.
As Angel Olsen proves over the course of her new compilation Phases and many artists before her have, these collections not only are an opportunity for the artist to give insight into the creative process, but also let us hear a batch of songs that might be strong, but may not have fit into the thematic or stylistic arcs of their LPs or EPs.
The Today/Tomorrow EP, comprised of "Waking Up On Time" and "Going To Sleep On Time," act as a parallel, a pair of heartbreaking songs that divide their sentiments between self-hate and self-improvement. Just as Fatato's lyrics slow drip depression on "Waking Up," there's an understanding that things will be better on "Going To Sleep," but it isn't any easier.
