The Needle Drop

While the trap-goth direction of "Pictures of You" could use some work, this debut EP solidifies HMLTD as one of the most promising post-punk groups out right now.

In a lot of ways this reminds me of a even more wacked out and crazy version of Adam Ant, Sparks or Devo. It's goofy, strange, out there, and defiantly not for everyone. But, when you click into it's synth heavy goofball-esq fun, then there is a lot to appreciate about this EP. It's punchy and strange, ... read more
