“Sherm” is the latest song from the Chicago production duo Supreme Cuts’ forthcoming debut album, Whispers in the Dark. With a track title referring to joints dunked in liquid PCP, this one points to a darker bend of their sound, like they’re trying to figure out footwork through a cloud of smoke and squinted eyes. And they never really get there—to footwork—instead caught up in the smolder, the way smoke folds into light, this ambient space in between. That’s when they’re at their best. Whispers in the Dark comes out June 12th on Dovecote.
