This week I was reflecting on how California-based label/conglomerate B3SCI is on a hot streak, then today they lit that streak on fire. They’re putting out UK throwback duo Fine Print’s self-titled EP, which features the fantastic, jazzy electro-pop song “Can’t Lie.” It’s a phenomenal song to end the week on, full of analogue scratch and fuzz, playful brass, and thick, velvety vocals. This recent rash of electronic infused nü-R&B owes so much to Thundercat, Dev Hynes, and the Weeknd, but even while channeling these influences, Fine Print manage to distance themselves from the pack. Listen.
The Fine Print EP is out 8/28 via B3SCI. Pre-order it on vinyl or digitally.
