Look at that! Baltimore’s hard-to-google eccentric Velvetesque protopunks Workers Comp return with a new four-song EP. Last March, I first heard the band, and the new EP Crazy With Sweat further builds my excitement for anything this three-piece (Luke Reddick, Ryan McKeever and Joshua Gillis) puts out. Workers Comp have a way of making their songs sound like loose and spontaneous one-take recordings with zero apprehension about the outcome, fully confident their songs will come out great regardless of the production value – or lack thereof. They are not wrong. And Good Look may be the closest Workers Comp has been yet to writing an underground pop hit.
The Crazy With Sweat EP is out now on a limited run of Tapes at Glad Fact.
