Final 12 months’s Buds was one other ridiculously stable launch from the fuzzed-out Connecticut indie band Ovlov. In the present day that group’s singer and guitarist Steve Hartlett is again with a solo album that digs into the extra experimental aspect of lo-fi indie rock. The eight-song assortment known as 1/2; each the title and the duvet artwork are a reference to the manga sequence Ranma 1/2. From opener “Bob G. Dylan” to nearer “WE” (not an Arcade Hearth cowl), it’s a bizarre, wild trip steeped in shoegaze, indie-pop, and DIY electronics. Have a pay attention beneath and purchase it at Bandcamp.
