Desktop is a combination of the creative forces of two men: Keith Thompson (from Electric Six and Johnny Headband) and Zach Curd (from Suburban Sprawl Music’s The Pop Project). When I first discovered the act several months ago, it was mainly with the intention of reviewing their all-too-short debut EP. At only three songs in length, it can’t possibly be difficult to describe them adequately.
But that’s exactly the position I found myself in. Having heard the EP hundreds of times now, I’m still at a loss to talk about it with adjectives other than “kick-ass,” “amazing,” and “awesome.”
I usually listen to an album while actually writing the review, yet with the Desktop EP I can’t concentrate enough on what I want to say about it because I’m far too busy bopping my head and shaking my fists to its heavy synth beats. In the end, I guess that’s all the endorsement this EP needs—other than one rather important one: It’s free. Download it now and bop along with me.
