|1.||Karl & The Kurbcrawlers - "Same Day (Again)" (3:36)|
Oliver Ho's industrial-minded Death & Leisure label enjoyed a successful debut year in 2016, serving up a trio of quietly impressive releases. This EP, the label's first of 2017, is effectively a showcase for the work of Ho's old pal Regis, AKA Karl O'Connor. On the A-side he joins forces with Veronica Vasicka as Kiss The Floor, wrapping mind-altering bass and layered vocals around a sparse drum machine beat on minimal wave throb-job "This Desire". O'Connor goes solo on the flip as Karl & The Kurbcrawlers, indulging his industrial punk fantasies on the apocalyptic slammer that is "Same Day" again. He even gets on the mic, coming on like Jilted John after a few too many sherberts.
