SPIRITS HAVING FUN DROP TITLE TRACK FROM DEBUT

Chicago art pop/math rock outfit Spirits Having Fun have followed up their excellent debut single, Electricity Explorer’  with the similarly idea rich, compositionally complex and genre dense ‘Auto-Portrait’, the title track from their forthcoming debut album.

One where capitalist economics and neoliberal ideology […]
