New Luby Sparks: “Cherry Red Dress”

Just in time to close out the autumn, Luby Sparks have a new EP of mostly maudlin indie-pop perfect for those who get down when the sun sets a few hours earlier. Save for opener “Perfect” and it’s charge-out-the-gates energy, the exquisitely titled (I’m) Lost In Sadness EP finds the group creating slow-burning downers. “Cherry Red Dress” is a highlight, moving in slow motion while running through a list of downtrodden images — dead Junebugs, on the road home! — coming from a moment the protagonist can’t shake. It’s icy, but with that warm memory grazing the side still. Listen above.
