I first came upon Febueder roughly a month ago when I heard the twitchy wonder “Alligator”, a track I seriously recommend if you haven’t had the chance yet. As I stated back then, genre means little to this Ascot threesome, and “Sloppiness Tank” is yet another proof of that. While it’s pointless to recite influences, let’s just say that this shows a softer and more melodic side of the band – less The Who and more Fleet Foxes, if that reference serves any point. “Sloppiness Tank” strikes me as less subdued to genre-hopping compared to “Alligator”, but just as immersive and erratic.
Febueder’s debut EP Soap Carv is out November 25 via Tape Club Records.
