Songs To Yeet At The Sun 12″ EP
Songs To Yeet At The Sun, serves as a perfect respite from the silence in between LPs and the current lull in live performances that the band has become known for nationwide. The five song blessing gives a further insight into the frankly deranged production of bassist/producer Gianmarco Guerra, who served as the sole producer and one of three engineers for the record. Songs like “(Quietly) Do The Right Thing” and “29” continue to show SOUL GLO’s affinity for speed as a vehicle for their aggression and messages, while songs like “I’m On Probation” and the previously released “Mathed Up” shows the bands love of chaotic-yet-atmospheric noise and the most popular rhythmic vocal styles of today’s current rap on top of the pummeling heaviness of the drums of TJ Stevenson. The band continues to showcase the rhythmic synergy existing between the entirety of the ensemble throughout the record, while the song “2K” features the straightforward rap production that peeked through on crowd-favorite songs “31” and “32” on the bands previous record, and also features a verse with instantly quotable lines from Richmond, VA artist ARCHANGEL.
Yeet is less than 12 minutes long, but it covers lived experiences and big-picture politics, spanning dissonant emo-core, fuzzed-out hip-hop, and rampaging rock ‘n’ roll as it colors in the corners of a black life outside the white punk gaze. – Chris L. Terry, Stereogum
