Chicago Band To Watch Slow Mass have already given us two thirds of their six-track EP, Treasure Pains, due later this week. So far it’s been a skillfully far-flung body of work with the aggression of “Dark, Dark Energy” and “Bruce Lee” punching you in the face from the beginning, and then easing up for more subtle, intricate soundscapes accentuating the male-female back-and-forth on vocals between Dave Collis and Mercedes Webb on “Nice But Not Kind.” Today the whole thing is available to stream in all its fuzzy glory. Check it out.
Treasure Pains is out digitally on 9/9 and physically on 9/26 via LandLord. Pre-order the 12″ EP here.
