When we last heard from Milwaukee's Sat. Nite Duets, on their 2013 album Electric Manland, they were venturing in some strange new places. That record was utterly wild, a proggy, synth-squiggled freakout dizzy with digressive genre shifts. So did that album mark the beginning of a permanent direction for the band? Nah. On their latest EP, Best Days, released this morning on Bandcamp, they smack th...
