Baeble First Play: The Interlinked Stories of Smoke Season

    We don't get enough concept albums anymore. Minus Kendrick Lamar and Titus Andronicus, it's become a bit of a lost art. I'm not saying every record needs to be a two-disc opus about your sense of alienation from your fans (The Wall) but it's nice when artists remember that an album can be a formally cohesive work of art that tells a unified, overarching tale. And that's where LA electro-pop duo Smoke Season enter the picture.

    We've got the exclusive premiere of Smoke Season's latest EP, Ouroboros, and that's an apt bit of imagery for an album delving into the interconnected lives of its characters. Fusing hypertextual storytelling, maximalist electro-pop and even hints of electro-rock with shimmering guitars, and deliciously off-kilter percussion, Ouroboros is another bit of evidence that the concept album need not only be the domain of the prog rock acts of the world.
