Second in a long line of shorties
Steve Voss is Tetherball. He hangs in Nashville, but his sound is much more 80s indie pop. He has committed to releasing six four-song EPs this year, and so far he's made good. Physical Violins is #2, but a far stronger release than the earlier Pheromone Food.
And, oh boy, are these four songs great. Tightly-wound minor-key tumblers that always find another darker layer beneath the surface. This EP is where Voss really starts to bare his teeth. In the most tuneful way possible, of course.
By the end of the year, Voss will have a double album's worth of songs. Given the distance between the first two sets in this series, I can only imagine what leaps are yet to come. I do know that I won't be looking past Tetherball again.
