Scatterbrain
Insufficient Soul

Self-Released
Street: 11.15.15
Scatterbrain = Ghasper + Rick Ross + the SOPHIE visual aesthetic

Ah, the “#sadboy makes feels music” trend has officially hit Salt Lake. Scatterbrain’s Insufficient Soul showcases this personal brand well, with depressing track titles like “we’re worried about you but we still don’t care” and well-produced down-tempo trap-like piano and snare beats. As far as feels music goes, Insufficient Soul hits the nail on the head and even manages to evoke a little bit of nostalgia for the MySpace days when the MSN Messenger ding provides the backing vocals on “I’m Sorry.” Though there are only four tracks on this album, they’re all well made and are worth checking out. –Julia Sachs
