REVIEW: Justus Proffit - 'Return 2 Zero' cassette (self-released)

The cover of this release features a person with their back to camera fiddling with a small multi-track recorder in a bedroom.  Naturally, I was intrigued so I hit 'play'.  'Return 2 Zero' has all those tape warbles, murky vocals and self-styled arrangements we've all come to expect from great bedroom pop, but it delivers on the songs as well.  Elliott Smith vibes abound (possibly a dash of Ty Segall?) on this 5-track EP that never pulls the same sonic trick twice.  Overall it's super solid and well worth a listen.  Get it here.
