Just a few months after releasing the excellent Bedroom Recordings LP—at the very least, listen to its "Massacre Isn't Marie" and "Black" 30 times… Jesus, seems like he just put out an album that was so good…—Salt Lake City's Euphoria Again has followed up with a self-titled LP, his first physical release. Out now via Orchid Tapes, who're selling a limited run of tapes, Euphoria Again was partly produced by the slept-on Coma Cinema/Elvis Depressedly and features guest vocals from the brat angel R.L. Kelly. On BandCamp, it's aptly tagged "sad bastard music" and "satanic gospel," all of which is to say: not to be missed. "Tied" in particular is a beacon—truly this song holds its own against anything, self-loathing and best-of lists equally.
