Tasseomancy doesn’t waste time. Just last year, they put out the magisterial Palm Wine Revisited, a captivating record that was our #4 of 2015. Do Easy isn’t at all a retread though, but another bold departure for the Toronto duo, one which sees them fully embracing their pop tendencies. There’s still a ton of experimental goodies in the margins for the classic Tasseoheads but this is a highly accessible record that could, and should, blow up huge. It’s nearly impossible to choose just one highlight, but the mesmerizing slow groove of the title track is a no-brainer must-hear.
Do Easy is available now from Hand Drawn Dracula and Bella Union.
