It’s only been a few of months since Little Hand Fighter was featured here, but Matt LeGroulx of Expwy says he’s been “trying to keep up with this Ty Segall guy and he is prolific this year,” so his answer has been to release a double concept EP about neighbourhoods destroyed by highways called Expwy in the Sky. Tracks 1-6 are meant to be played simultaneously with tracks 7-12, and though I haven’t managed to do so yet, I’ve managed to be entranced by this confident, beautiful EP. LeGroulx’s modus operundi so far has been releasing lo-fi mini wall-of-sound symphonies and he keeps to that formula here while managing to refine and expand his sound. His sonic explorations never cease to amaze me.
Expwy in the Sky is available as a pay-what-you-want download from Bandcamp, along with the rest of LeGroulx’s prolific output in the last few years.
