Lil Silva, aka TJ Carter, will drop a new EP, Mabel, on True Panther early next month. We’ve already heard the delicate, cold, R&B-inflected title track, but First Mark boasts a wholly different type of sound. A thick, ropey bassline opens things up, tinny, chaotic percussion scampers throughout and the track closes with a wordless, coo-ing chorus. It is now impossible to guess what the EP’s other three tracks will sound like. Listen below.
