Today we have some music from the Ukraine, by way of pop punk artist Phooey, aka Nikita Ogurtsov. His new EP is Upright Animals and Their Ridiculous Tricks. The five tracks are stark, edgy pieces with a bit of a Cold War Kids feel to them. The EP blends hard punk passages with more melodic pop interludes, to yield tracks that have a nice dynamic range without sacrificing the intensity punk music requires.
