Ruth Mascelli of US synth-punk group Special Interest released a debut longplayer last year that already feels like an overlooked gem. A Night At the Baths is a sonic exploration sexuality and dystopia. As Mascelli tells it us, it’s an “audio diary of adventures had at various bathhouses, dark rooms, and gay clubs” while traveling and touring with the group. Each track related to different spaces – “some may be lonely, some crowded, but I tried to leave them open enough to walk around and explore”. The LP that came out on London imprint Disciples got a new, reworked release on cassette and a zine in December.
