I love the blog RCRD LBL (and you should too), but I don’t keep up on it as well as I should. The other day when I was perusing its recent additions, I found this free EP from the band ARMS. Todd Goldstein, the man behind the project has expended the moniker from just him to a full band. Goldstein was also in the now-defunct band Harlem Shakes, but this is a different sort of output than Harlem Shakes’ indie pop. The EP is a little more sonically ethereal and expansive, and it precedes an eventual album, which, according to the band’s MySpace, will be called Summer Skulls.
Get a couple of the tracks below, and get the rest of the EP via the band’s website. It’s good. It’s free. You should get it.
ARMS – Heat & Hot Water (mp3) from EP
