Nashville’s own ski-masked, bit-crushing, electro-master Makeup & Vanity Set is back with a brand new EP- Never Let Go. Grab it now on his bandcamp digitally for $6, or get the limited edition (as in only 50 copies!) for $15.

This new EP offers a lot familiar sounds- lots of 8-bit leads and swooshes/swirls layered over driving basslines and thick beats. Video games in the 80s. Robocop. Expolsions. Mr.T. This shit is tough, and I still say there is no better music to punch-dance to that MAVS. He is punch-dance master, and you should buy all of his material right now.

Makeup & Vanity Set (aka Matt Pusti aka DAAS) has been busy lately. Just last March he released the epically awesome self-titled album that marked the return of MAVS. (The project had been on a bit of a hiatus for a few years.) Now he’s released a new 6-song EP The Final Fire, and well, Pusti’s own description, “THIS RECORD IS AN 8-BIT KNIFE FIGHT” pretty much sums it up better than I ever could. He goes on to say, “EVERYTHING RECORDED ON CASSETTE TAPES. OLD SCHOOL NOISE. EVERYTHING AT BREAKNECK SPEED. THESE SONGS WERE WRITTEN IN BEDROOMS. ON LAPTOPS AND SAMPLERS.”

Yep, that’s about it. Now go get the EP!
