Chicago-via-Wisconsin four-piece Slow Pulp recorded most of their “Big Day” EP in a cabin in Michigan. Music critics love to obsess over environment—where an album was recorded, how it was recorded and how the process was potentially affected by a space—and occasionally their assumptions about the music’s relationship to the landscape actually reflect reality. This, however, is one of those instances when a record sounds absolutely nothing like its origin grounds.

This four-song suckerpunch contains moments of ambience and noise, but never does Big Day resemble something Bon Iver made in the woods. It’s impressive because Slow Pulp— made up of Teddy Mathews, Alex Leeds, Henry Stoehr and Emily Massey, who joined later but who the band would absolutely be incomplete without don’t even have a full-length album out yet.

They barely have enough songs out in the world to equal an album tracklist, but they’re nonetheless one of the most exciting acts to emerge this year. “New Media,” a steady, shiny standout on the EP, is a classic taste of millennial jadedness. “I can’t seem to break the fence,” Massey sings. “Overacted in all my plans.” But when has exhaustion ever sounded this composed?

‘Big Day’ full EP by Slow Pulp is out now:

Tracklist : 1. Do You Feel It (00:00) 2. New Media (01:47) 3. High (04:58) 4. Young World (07:31)

Larissa Sapko had set two goals for herself in the summer of 2013: find a job, and start a band. Once she got a job, the band wasn’t far behind. She asked her friend Kian Sorouri if he would like to play guitar (he did), and he in turn asked Jim Dobrowolski if he would like to play drums (he learned how, and he did). What It Is came out in December 2013, and Loose Tooth enjoyed a year of playing local shows and weekenders in the Northeast.

After hearing that Jimmy was moving to Costa Rica, Christian Bach and Kyle Laganella stepped forward and volunteered their shredding skills to keep Loose Tooth moving up and onward. After reworking their first EP What It Is and writing some new songs in the process, the band’s debut record Easy Easy East was ready to rip.

After touring on Easy Easy East throughout 2015, the band came together to start writing their follow up record Big Day. The songs on Big Day developed a more cohesive feeling as the four became more comfortable playing together. Big Day is set to be released in April of 2017 on Father/Daughter Records and Lame-O Records.
