Video: Sego, ‘20 Years Tall’


Utah ex-pats Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll have a wealth of musical ideas, and as the core duo of L.A.-based quartet Sego they have packaged them smartly in their debut EP, “Wicket Youth.” Art-punk, dream-pop, lo-fi indie – they’re all wedged into a thrill-a-minute five songs. If the agit-rock guitars don’t get you, the slacker vocals will, or the washing machine rhythms, or the presence of actual choruses, or … well, you get the idea. “Wicket Youth,” just out on Kitsuné, is over in 15 minutes, but it makes you wonder what else these guys have in their arsenal. And, considering the promising music we’ve heard from other bands who’ve migrated to L.A. from the duo’s home state, what’s in the water in Utah.
