Growing out of the remains of Deaf Parade, Parisian band Hobby comes into their own on a debut solo EP that’s chomping on a couple of great sounds. With a jangled backbone and a taste for fuzz pop, the band rips into “The Humblest” like an overlooked cut from the DGC demo bin. The song trips over itself with a tangle of guitars but settles into a slow-simmer Pavement patter that explodes with a rather ravenous chorus that melts the paint at the top edges of the room. While the band definitely owes a few debts to the class of ’94 on this one, they do it with a love that comes through earnestly. The song’s just the tip of things on their upcoming 7” from Hidden Bay / RDS REC. Out on Dec 11th.
