This quickie EP—five songs recorded in a week—comes courtesy of the brothers (biological and metaphorical) in the So So Glos, key players in and ardent supporters of the Brooklyn DIY/punk/indie scene. While hardly earth-shattering, Low Back Chain Shift gets by on scrappy charm. The galloping opener “Fred Astaire” and the punky, urgent closer “Lindy Hop” are slices of Brooklyn-circa-right-now, but the foursome take a funny trip across the pond on the EP’s middle three tracks: “Live Like TV” (short “i”) plays like stripped-down Los Campesinos!, while “Here Comes the Neighborhood” dabbles in Britpop and “New Stance” is the indie rock answer to Led Zeppelin III folk. They’re Brooklyn guys through and through—heck, the album title refers to a feature of the New York dialect—but they’ve got their sights set on bigger things, too.
