SASAMI – “Not The Time”

SASAMI – “Not The Time”

This past spring, Sasami Ashworth released her first-ever single, “Callous,” after a career largely playing backup for and contributing to projects for Cherry Glazerr, Avi Buffalo, Wild Nothing, and Hand Habits. The Los Angeles-based musician is coming into her own now, though, under the eponymous name SASAMI, and she’s just shared another new song, “Not The Time,” which will be packaged on a 7″ alongside “Callous” that’s coming out on Domino Records. This fall, she’ll be sharing stages with Mitski, Soccer Mommy, and Snail Mail.

“Not The Time” serves as a nice counterpoint to “Callous” — where that song sprawled, this one’s tighter and more compact. It’s centered around a single and inescapable thought: “It’s not the time or place for us/ But you said that you would save some space for us,” Ashworth sings, her self-doubt and pain punctured by needling guitars and a buzzing that threatens to swallow the song whole.
