The Godawful Small Affairs are one of my favorite Chicago bands, and this release offers two more great songs. The first time I saw them play, it reminded me of the first time I saw Beach Bunny. A few dozen enthusiastic friends/fans singing along with cathartic joy. Missy, the main songwriter and singer, is able to swirl up some twang, punk, and singer-songwriter into their own beautiful sound. The one original on this release, Sunday Sure, displays Missy’s ability to make songs that are accessible, while also feeling like an album’s worth of ideas compacted into five minutes. Give this e.p. a listen then check out some of their past songs like Devour You and Teenage Love Song, and hopefully midwest folks will get a chance to catch them outdoors soon.
