Texas Platters Finale

Borrisokane

Disaster Face

Don't let a seemingly innocuous title like "Do the Squirmy Worm" fool you. Despite bouncy keyboard lines and skittering Afro-pop guitar, the first salvo on Borrisokane's second five-song EP comes grounded in gloom. The sextet's darkened atmospherics allude to synth-punk pioneers Suicide, with lyrical themes to match. Of course, plying these sentiments against dynamic, people-pleasing song structures can't help but lighten the mood. The end of the world is no reason to stop making ear worms. ***
