Jaye Thomas and Lisa Poszywak of Detroit’s Rogue Satellites started working together in 2011.
Since then, their evolving post-punk sound has been captured on three full-length records, Other Angels (2013), Bees and Snakes (2015), and Black Wings (2018) as well as a 7”, entitled Double A Side (2014).
On November 9, Lisa Poszywak and Jaye Thomas of Rogue Satellites will release a new EP called Baby I’m Jeff. Adding the 5 song EP to their catalog, we find the duo reconnecting with their instruments: partially lifting the ethereal stomp-box haze that permeates their most recent efforts.
Still laden with echo and atmosphere, Baby I’m Jeff moves at a driving, guitar-emphasized pace scarcely heard since their eponymous first release in 2012. Songs like “Son of an Atom Bomb” and “Mercury in Retrograde” rock hard and fast with protopunk exuberance, while “Autopilot Says Yes” and “I Can See the Future” carry a lofty downtempo sludge. The title track is a pretty acoustic ballad that chronicles patterns of privilege, hypocrisy, and abuse while posing as a love
Drawing more influence from the 90s than the 60s or the 80s, Baby I’m Jeff has a new urgency and drive. The album will be released on CD (Space Camp Records, Detroit) and cassette (Midwest Action, Chicago), in addition to being available on most digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.)
