Introduced to our pages with last month’s Avians, which won rave reviews from our readership, Gainesville crew CYNE returns to the Booth with a brand new promo single off its next independent full-length. Contrary to what the title suggests, Firefights is less concerned with literal than lyrical ammunition. Cise Star‘s skillful verses cover a wide swath of ground—Portlandia references, conspiracy theories and free-associative poetry all jostle for attention. In-house producers Enoch and Speck provide a subdued, yet striking backdrop for the verbal crossfire, setting a pensive mood with reversed samples and looped guitar harmonics. All My Angles Are Right, the group’s first studio album since 2009’s Water for Mars, is pre-orderable now via Bandcamp in anticipation of its release on Tuesday, March 18. Booth readers will get a sneak peek at the set the preceding Monday, when it hits our front page for full, free streaming.
