quartet quintet The Quip self-released an EP called Almost The Same – Hyang Music has samples for every song. It was mixed and produced by Jelly Boy, so I’ve been meaning to check them out for a while now. Yet it wasn’t till this morning when I found that ready4d had uploaded some new clips with them that I actually gave them a listen. Turns out I’ve really been missing out on something!
To me the sound of The Quip reminisces the post-punk/grunge offered by The Plastic Day, with the occasional Blue Album style Apollo 18 on top. As anybody attending the joint The Plastic Day & Apollo 18 show in May could witness it’s a successful combination, but The Quip also brings some energy and style of their own in the mix. And djembe.
