“Pleasant Experience” (MP3)

    Is Small Black named as such because they’re basically the polar opposite of Big Black? There’s absolutely no abrasive blood struggle to Small Black’s “Pleasant Experience”; the song’s busy melody and wistful vocal is true to its title, if anything. The whole thing’s a little thin aesthetically, but perhaps that’s the point?

     

    “Pleasant Experience” appears on the band’s self-titled 12-inch.
