A Zoom Chat with Sweat About their New EP

COVID-19 has caused a lot of cancellations and postponements. Many artists who were on the cusp of releasing new albums have pushed them back indefinitely. Thankfully, Detroit's own Sweat decided to do just the opposite. They figured, since we are all stuck at home we should have something good to listen to. So, they released a new 5 track EP that features new versions of previously recorded tracks off their 2017 release Gloom Pride. This is the band's first time heading into a "real" studio and you can hear the difference. In fact, this album is so smokey and melodic that we didn't even realize that it was some of the same tracks until we talked to Krista and Val via Zoom this week. The new EP was recorded by Josh Schroeder and mixed and mastered by Elise McCoy.  Check out our first Zoom interview (it has some flaws, but were trying new things here) to see what Val and Krista had to say and how they are handling sheltering in place together. Then, head over to Soundcloud to give the album a listen. We can't wait to see Sweat play live again, hopefully, it'll be sooner than later.
