Today’s Track: Mazes “Astigmatism”

mazes_015_480_318_s_c1Mazes — “Astigmatism”

Summer is the best time for songs that are barely holding themselves together, kind of like this loopy new track from the UK-based trio Mazes, which chugs along at an amiable pace, equal parts riff and windy guitar solos. This is a classic Best Friend track — as in, we want to be buddies with it. It’s so likable and loose; self-made and just imperfect enough to be super, super catchy. And while Mazes’ previous efforts have been homespun (and self-produced), this track comes care of Parquet Courts producer Jonathan Schenke and you can tell. (That’s a compliment.) Their new record will be out via FatCat this fall. We’re looking forward.
