Bellevue producer/Line Out favorite Crazy Old Bat offers another new track from an EP in progress available for streaming, “Happy Curiosity Runway.” It’s a slight departure from his more typical bass-heavy, Scorn-full output. This track features the deadpan speak-sing vocals of the Obligations and a sample of a gorgeously mournful wordless croon woven into a lugubrious Legendary Pink Dots-like tapestry. Only that godforsaken "ooohhh" survives the cleansing white-noise coda, bringing the track to an unbearably poignant (anti)climax.
