Synthy, electronic, bassy shoe gaze goodness is next up on the menu with all femme L.A band Automatic's 2022 release Excess. If cool had a default sound it would be this album, with tight hooks, pointed yet fuzzy lyrics and an unconventional digital atmosphere, serious bops are being had! Perfect for those crowded walks in the city trying to get to the gig as quickly but as smoothly as possible. This release is a well executed example of the the organic fusing into the automated sound wave, allowing the listener to escape into something uniquely surreal.
