On the heels of December’s Sugar Blind EP, Marika Hackman returns with a follow-up to one of our favorite sets from an emerging artist last year. The new one is right around the corner, due in April with opening cut “Deep Green” making its debut this week. In the last year alone, Hackman has released a short covers set, a 7-track original set, and the aforementioned EP. Yet despite that prolific run, this taste of Deaf Heat proves the palette is nowhere near running thin on new colors. In particular, the tune cuts between tension-building, minor-key melodies and a major-chord release in a way we haven’t heard from her other work. Underneath it all is a buoyant sampled rhythm section that shifts from disconcerting and urgent to settled on a dime. The full EP arrives on April 14th.
