It's been two years since we were gifted Lubec's lauded The Thrall and finally today, we get their second full length with Cosmic Debt.
Thematically exploring karmic debenture in life, Cosmic Debt gifts us the Lubec we've grown to love over the years; dreamgaze personified by reverbed string riffs, eruptive drumming by Matt Dressen and vocals that call for attention.
Four fuzzy instrumental-like interludes break up a pleasant distortion of tracks, led by layers of Eddie Charlton's ripe vocality. Piano playing by Caroline Jackson adds a slightly delicate but necessary element which, coupled with her sometimes rawly spurted vocals (like in the album's title track), round out the sound that separates Lubec from other "gazey" acts in town.
Lubec's release show for Cosmic Debt is tomorrow at Blackwater with supporting performances from Talkative, Dog Thieves, Two Moons and Radler.
Stream Cosmic Debt below and be sure to stop by Blackwater tomorrow to celebrate.
