But it never came—members Tracy Bryant, Billy Changer and Jeffertiti all put out solo work, and Rick Mabery moved more completely into the production side. And today we’re here with the bittersweet news that Corners is officially over … but they’re leaving with a final four-song EP that would have been the start of that next album, and that shows what would/could/should have been. The four-song The Floor EP is out now on the new Day End label, and “Damages” is a characteristically Corners song that matches Joy Division gravity to CA post-punk like the underrated Homeland by the Middle Class—it’s a dark but not defeated song where the negative space is as much a part of the sound as the music. 500 copies of The Floor (with art by Tim Presley) are available now. Get it while you can—fittingly, this won’t last either.
