Friend of the blog, Speaker Snacks ended its run as a record label with the release of this Top Girls EP, its twelfth release. It’s always bittersweet when a small label shuts down but I know that Jake has many other projects that will reward music lovers here in Denver and elsewhere.
After Life is a minimalist R&B offering that falls somewhere between James Blake and How To Dress Well. It’s music that’s set in the hazy trappings of lo-fi samples and floating vocals. The whole EP is embedded and Next Year is the must-hear track of the EP. Evan Woods is Top Girls, you can like him on Facebook.
