When sending over materials for this feature, Josh from Small Black said, "I think this is the first time we've done hi-res anything." He was joking, but his self-awareness was relieving, like he was okaying the use of certain words to describe his band. So yes, "Despicable Dogs" is druggingly dirty and cheap-sounding, awash in noise but still an obviously great, pubescent pop song. Small Black's self-titled EP is out now through Cass Club, you can buy the 12-inch over at Insound.
