Milwaukee’s Fatty Acids and Sat. Nite Duets may share a general musical sensibility, but their respective sounds couldn’t be more different. The Fatty Acids trade in outsized, joyous, keyboard-infused anthems, while Sat. Nite Duets tend to shuffle along and drolly make cracks about getting shitfaced. That important but strangely complimentary dichotomy is on full display on the new Torrential Zen, a four-way split seven-inch with the Acids and Duets on one side, and Brooklyn’s Dinosaur Feathers and Radical Dads on the other.
Both Milwaukee groups are celebrating the release of the record this Saturday at Linneman’s, where a limited run will be available for purchase. Of course, the entire thing is also available online, where you can hear The Fatty Acids’ bouncy “Unscreened,” and Sat. Nite Duets’ terrific “Conjugal Visit,” which the band recently told WMSE was about “getting fired by your girlfriend.” Listen to both songs—and the tracks from Dinosaur Feathers and Radical Dads—below.
