When the first song of an EP is called 'How it Ends,' you know things are about to get deep. The Argentine's debut, self-titled album takes you far back through history to explore Scottish-sounding ballads (How it Ends) and Weimar-era acid jazz (The Argentine), and back again with haunting bangers like Red Flesh Dogs. Not a simple thing, but singer Mike Cades and company manage to pull these disparate worlds together, ending up with something William S. Burroughs might have had in his car while waxing lyrical. Buy the ticket, and take the ride.
