Soft Healer Extended Player
EP 12″ vinyl + download
Soft Healer seem to take their time between releases, but the payoff is worth the wait. EP, their longest recording to date, travels on thick, web-like bass lines and sub-Hazel guitar licks. Impressively economical drumming anchors these songs, organ/wah, no wave workouts try to pull them free, all while the vocal harmonies and sax punctuations vacillate along this spectrum. This a heavy record, emotional and capable of inducing survivor’s guilt.
