I think Eric Farber from previously dug trippers Truman Peyote is dropping some slightly diluted psychs for his solo project Easyboy cos there's not as many mid-song moodswings or occasional scary visions on his debut cassette Friends. Which isn't to say it's straight either, there's still some colourful sonic exploration going on here - from "Markers" totally spastic clambering, the Lucky Dragons w/ free jazz bliss out on "Beebugs" to the sketched Kurt Vile-isms of "Slick Nap", it still has that slightly restless metamorphic quality of Truman Peyote's LP Light-Lightning but with a bedroom scope and a bigger focus on pop sounds. Like this track "Chest Swimmers" which emerges from cloudy bubbles into a fully fledged 1950s Shake Shack hang-out hit with earnest guitars and goofball vocals. Put this on a mixtape with Fluffy Lumbers "Cruisers" and "Grey Dayz" by Big Troubles and grab a chocolate shake doggs.
