Izzy Heltai — mostly myself again

"Mostly Myself Again", the new EP from Izzy Heltai, finds the singer-songwriter paralyzed at the crossroads. Just as lockdown ended and Heltai was preparing to tour, he injured his foot and broke up with his girlfriend and found himself back home with his mom. Mostly myself again is a four-song postcard of a moment in enforced stasis — after many moments of stasis — and pondering what it means to grow up.
