The smartphone app, however, doesn't work exactly like the PC service.

Users can't pick the exact song they want to play right away, and will have to shuffle through their playlists.

Their self-titled EP releases January 5, but we've got "Chest Pressure" today - take a listen in the replies, pre-order the EP on their BandCamp, & catch the band on tour with A Lot Like Birds, Stolas, and The Venetia Fair next month.
