I’m definitely feeling this Black Water EP by Chicago-based Thin Hymns. While it definitely invites comparisons to Grizzly Bear, the four tracks on this EP feature looser structural boundaries that more closely resemble the song-craft of experimental rockers like Akron/Family or even Animal Collective. Basically, you’ll hear psychedelic, folk-inspired compositions built with shifting melodies, warbling grooves and bright falsetto vocals. I’m officially hooked. Give it a listen and see for yourself.
Thanks to our friends at I Guess I’m Floating cause that’s where we found this. This was available on super-limited edition cassette, but is now sold out.
