Andrew Strader's debut "No Improvement" needs no improvement to be a solid listen

Andrew Strader's debut recording No Improvement is a stripped down slacker tale that still feels fleshed-out and doesn't cut any corners. No Improvement takes itself completely seriously, sometimes a feat for bedroom compositions, but still takes advantage of its lo-fi tape hiss aesthetic to keep the whole thing fun. Vocals hiss and crack, solos wander in and out of the frame, and the (remarkably tasteful) reverb fills your ears like cotton. It's a brief listen, and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by skipping it. -Austin Phy

WRITER releases new album “Principle Web” + video for single "Neighborly"

Former Deli Album Of the Month WRITER return with their follow up full length album “Principle Web.” Out on Small Plates Records, the ten track long player can be acquired in either digital or the once again popular vinyl format. Current single “Neighborly” presents a hypnotic drum beat straight outta Creedence Clearwater Revivals 1968 hit “Suzie Q,” as buzzy, distorted guitar and bass hover on a singular note before moving into a three chord progression. Chanted vocals come delivered with a mantra-like “I love – all of you.” A full minute in and the vocal cadence quickens, delivering simple observations like “there’s a shortage of clean laundry, and a mound of plastic bags” with the following verse declaring “there’s a party” as well as “a new tree that was planted.” In place of where one might traditionally expect a guitar solo is a falsetto vocal melody, moving it all closer to David Lynch film soundtrack weirdness. Harder power rock guitar chords lead the charge towards an ending that conjures the sound of a car wreck explosion. The accompanying video directed by Brooklyn-based visual artist Paul Remund portrays moving images in stark black and white, distorted by a form of digital cubism. - Dave Cromwell

New Track: "Build Your Own Bro Smasher Original Soundtrack." - +HIRS+

Wake the fuck up! It's Friday, and time to make your ears bleed this morning, in a good way, as we get ready for the weekend. Forgive us, we have grown accustom to +HIRS+ releasing about 100 tracks at a time (literally) so it feels a bit strange to just be sharing with you their latest single "Build Your Own Bro Smasher Original Soundtrack." And for those who know what we are talking about, just try and think of this track as an EP.
