Starred – No Good
It’s no surprise that Liza Thorn was once in a band with Girls’ Christopher Owens — both sing with the heaviest of hearts, as if they can barely get out of bed to get themselves into the studio. Also, both are at their best when they simplify things sonically, exposing the red-raw emotion and desperation that lies behind the socialization. “No Good” is a spare track off of an upcoming 7″, and it drags its feet from start to finish — but we mean that in a good way. Matt Koshak’s guitar lazily slides under Thorns voice, evoking a simultaneous hopeless and hopefulness that defines the track.
