That's transgender drummer Rikki Bates you hear keeping time on the six songs of Mascara's new EP Spell (Mr. Fibuli). It's at turns heavy ("Great Divide," "Percy's Revenge") and heavenly ("Frostbite," "Time Is a Lie"). If you're concerned about your mascara running, don't play this disc at full volume.
