This four-song EP from New Brunswick chillwave duo Vogue Dots delivers the sad. You could probably play these tracks over clips of a depressed DJ playing to one sad kid at the club, holding a drink, nodding off (but beautifully photographed, naturally). "Way With Silence" showcases gloriously ethereal vocals over sparse blips, while "Tux" takes you out to that cocktail party for all of your best friends' corpses. Things kick up a little bit with "Jealous Arts," which dusts off the dance shoes but still stands in the corner, and closer "Way Out" eats up the leftover beats and spits them out for all to enjoy. It's a methodical little offering, one that walks a lot of lines and crosses even more. Your headphones will thank you.
