Evan Patterson of The National Acrobat/Black Widows/Breather Resist/Young Widows fame returns with his new side project with Dan Davis of Kodan Armada, Bad Secrets. This 9" record was just released on Robotic Empire.
Similar to the work Evan has been churning out with Young Widows, but with a much more stripped down approach. Using only drums, guitars and vocals, the duo blends elements of drone, country, shoegaze and post-punk/hardcore on this record and recorded the whole thing on a four track cassette, which adds to the lo-fi aesthetic elements of this record.
I find this record to function well as both background music and something to attentively listen to.
Decide for yourself.
