One of our favourite labels, Liminal Sounds is readying a new release by Soda Plains with his Kickbacks EP (due out Dec. 11). You might not be familiar with the name Soda Plains just yet, but his bleeding-edge mix of punishing drums and growling bass won't be forgotten in a hurry. Caustic though it seems, there's a diamond in the rough in the form of some delicately crafted melodies, conspicuous in their brightness. That said, when set against the harsh, frantic percussion they take on an almost ominous tone. As the nights get longer and longer, Liminal Sounds have gifted you with the perfect tune to soundtrack the darkness.
