2017 Golden Brown

This record was recorded and written in Bryan’s Home Studio onto 2 inch 24 track tape by Bryan Olson and Wils Glade. Ethan, our bass player, and Cody, our drummer, came over to record on multiple tracks while also laying down some more instruments here and there. We also had some of our local friends from other bands incl. Bryan’s brother play percussion and other instruments on some of the songs.

After mixing the last record, Bryan and I were really interested into recording everything, doing some rough mixes, but then handing the tape over to someone we trusted for mixing to learn and just see what happens. The tape was then taken down to Chase Park Transduction Studio (Animal Collective “Merriweather Post Pavillion”, Deerhunter, Toro y Moi) to be mixed by Drew Vandenberg(who mixed “Underneath the Pine” by Toro y Moi). The studio is located in Athens, GA. We mixed down to ½ inch tape and then shipped the tapes off to Telegraph Mastering in Portland, OR for mastering.

For this album Bryan and I really wanted to push the “genre” in a bunch of directions for fun. We feel like a lot of our favorite albums are very diverse sounding from song to song, so that is what we were going for with this one. Also, Interstellar was actually the first song that Bryan and I ever wrote together but then got buried in the rest of the songs we were working on for our first EP, so we were super excited to revisit it for this album and give it the attention that it needed.

Equally inspired by classic psychedelic pop and modern indie rock, the new album finds the band branching out and incorporating shoegaze, post-punk, and dream pop influences into their sound. The resulting album calls to mind the effervescent melodies of labelmates Sugar Candy Mountain, the ghostly atmosphere of Papercuts, and the twisted pop sensibilities of Chris Cohen. ... more
