Newish Toronto garage trio Wine Lips has dropped their debut EP. I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with them a couple months ago. They impressed me then and this EP is spot on. Its noisy and raucous while still keeping you interested with catchy melodies and hooks. It opens up with a quick and to the point banger called "Slaves". They had previously released the tune "Dead Beat" which is a wicked 2 minute track featuring thumping drums and a wacky solo. "The Shakes" sings about what most of us feel on a Monday and has a surfy drum beat to go along with the controlled madness that is Wine Lips. The highlight of this EP for me is "Out of Control". Right from the opening riff you can tell it's gonna be a good song. The verse is tight and catchy but when they slam into the chorus thats when you'll be hooked. Add in a deadly solo/breakdown and you're good to go. This EP is available on their bandcamp page for only 5 bucks. Celebrate their release with them on Saturday April 23rd at Bovine Sex Club. - Kris Gies
