Album Review
Super Chuck
Reviewed 2018-11-20 
The debut EP from New York band Public Practice, Distance is a Mirror, is a confident, juried testimony of love steeped in dark optimism. Dry, dead pan vocals chant over skittish guitar and danceable 70s grooves—songs snapping like rubber bands—seesawing between post-punk and its insomniac twin sister disco. The band uses post-punk and puts it very danceable. There is always a loose groove, which is sometimes poppy then atmospheric varied. Overall, all four tracks are outstanding.

Play: All

1.Fate/Glory (2:38) Dancefloor gripping groove. A hit!
2.Bad Girl(s) (2:07) A bit punkiger and brittle, but the foot keeps rocking.
3.Foundation (3:41) Spacy guitar sounds and fades into a funk rhythm.
4.Into the Ring (3:56) great groove that goes from stand-offish to a full sexy embrace when it kicks into gear.
