From “Head to Toe” to “Dry Hands” you will not find me pressing pause while listening to WRITER‘s new LP Brotherface. Hailing from Brooklyn, brothers James and Andy Ralph have a sort of fuzzy, psychedelic sound that is much more than your average two-guys-standing-on-stage-with-guitars. They are a unique combination of ghetto-tech meets garage-rock with remnants of Young Buffalo and Of Mice & Men.
All ten tracks on the LP bring something new to the table in order to keep you listening and keep you on your feet. The songs are briefer than most, but artfully so, as to not be too repetitious like many bands unfortunately are these days.
The end of “Barefoot Art” features a shout chorus of just the boys with a tambourine which is the perfect example of their ness. Their layered sounds and defined structure will keep you hooked and leave you wanting more.
But for now, download their cover of Santigold‘s “Desperate Youth”, and when you are finished with that, stream the new album here courtesy of Spinner.
The band has also created a 28-minute visual stream, tailored to each individual track:
