Big Putts – “Prism” (Stereogum Premiere)
Big Putts comprises Alex Molini (Dirty Dishes, Jackal Onasis, Stove), Jesse Weiss (Palehound, Grass Is Green) and Gio Coviello (Kiss Concert, Trespasser), making them a supergroup of sorts among the ever-evolving Northeastern DIY scene that surrounds Exploding In Sound Records. The band put out a full-length, Bogey Nights, way back in 2012, and now they’re slated to release two new singles by way of Half Pint Collective. “Prism” doesn’t present us with a message so much as it lends us a mood. It’s an emotive, dark song with instrumentation that careens in-and-out of control over just-barely audible lyrics. This is a song for days dampened by glum, grey skies — like today, if you happen to be in the New York area. Listen below.
“Prism b/w Donut” is out 12/22 via Half Pint Collective.
