The latest EP from Toronto's Gregory Childs & Heart Lung may be more of a single than an EP (it's only two songs), but it still demands your attention. The two songs that make up Baby Blue are alt-country at its finest. "Baby Blue" and "Blood Ties" sound dirty. "Baby Blue" sounds like it might have some positivity behind it, but "Blood Ties" is almost impossibly dark. It's the kind of song you may need to take a shower after listening to. Both sound like if Bob Dylan signed with Bloodshot Records.
You can listen to "Blood Ties" below. Baby Blue is available as a free download via Bandcamp. The band is promising a full length album in mid-2021. For more on Gregory Childs & Heart Lung, check out their website.
