CURRENTLY LISTENING: Sadness is the Rich Man’s Drug EP by The Ropes
Last week I received a sweet tip from a fan named Natalie suggesting that I listen to electronic outfit The Ropes. She said she couldn’t believe that more people hadn’t heard of them. I took a listen and agreed with her, especially given that Tricky released a song well over a year ago that samples their “Love Is a Chain Store”, the low number of listeners is kinda mind-boggling. But whatever. If you’re reading this now and enjoy some dark and sullen EDM with a wise political edge, your love affair with The Ropes is about to begin.
