15 hours ago, Russ enabled a formation the likes of which we haven't seen since the heavens Beyonce Knowles woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Well, not exactly. Russ has high hopes and potential to spare, but this ain't that. Just In Case is an EP comprised of songs leftover from ZOO sessions. Waste not, want not, am I right? I guess that's what he was after. Russ enjoyed a banner, so why not remind everybody in the most suggestive way possible: an "ad hoc" project that points back to his big budget album, just in time for those year-end discussions.
On "Just In Case," Russ lies in the sweet spot that he created for himself: of mid-tempo pacing, a loose songwriting acumen, and production that borrows from live instrumentation (his own doing). The songs included in the EP range from "Lauryn Hill on a chill pill" to "guitars and campfires" on the energy index. Listen to Just In Case and let us know what you think.
