Good Things - New Tape

This is the 'New Tape' EP from Ontario band Good Things.

The EP starts with the gorgeous instrumental number 'Insider Baseball' - a fine chilled-out affair. This is quickly followed by the fiery garage rock of 'Wall To Wall' featuring mosh-pit baiting tempo changes.

Next up, '500 Hands' is a fabulously catchy indie pop song whilst, final track, 'Snowman' rounds the EP nicely with a short blast of rock 'n' roll.

You can snap this EP up now for NYOP via their bandcamp page:
