OBITS

You have questions about Obits. This is understandable. They’re an intriguing band.
For starters, you ask, “Are Obits ‘indie rock veterans’?” The answer is: yes and no. Yes, they are accomplished musicians who once fronted Drive Like Jehu, Edsel, Hot Snakes, and Pitchfork. But also; No, they are not active or retired members of the United States military. They are not veterans in that sense. It’s good to get these things sorted out. Don’t worry—there are no dumb questions.
Are Obits a young band? They are. Another good question. A child born in 2007, when Greg Simpson joined as bassist, would not yet be in kindergarten. Obits didn’t self-release their first single (“One Cross Apiece” b/w “Put It in Writing”) until late 2008. Their debut LP (I Blame You, on Sub Pop), wasn’t released until March 2009.
Is it true fans bootlegged Obits’ very first show? It is very much true. Does their stripped-down rock incorporate elements of surf and garage? Absolutely it does. The members of Obits are fans of oldies. They generally dislike newies. But their influences simmer in the crock-pot of human creativity; you will find only disappointment if you try to deduce the muse of any given song.
What, you ask, of Obits’ new record? Well, for starters, it’s their second full-length, and it’s called Moody, Standard and Poor. It was recorded at Brooklyn’s Saltlands Studio by Eli Janney and Geoff Sanoff. Sub Pop will release it on March 29, 2011. This concerns you. Isn’t that Vangelis’s birthday? To be perfectly honest, it is. This was a scheduling snafu, plain and simple. There’s nothing to be done about it now.

I’m glad we had this talk!

WE FADE TO GREY

WE FADE TO GREY machen Musik, die soundästhetisch wohl in Städten wie Washington, Seattle und Halifax zur Jahrtausendwende zu Hause war und ist. Das klingt nach verschrobenem Post-Punk mit einer Affinität zu sperrigen Elementen und Experimenten, aber dennoch eingängig. Komplexe Gitarrenarbeit und treibende Bassläufe treffen auf tighte Schlagzeugrhythmen und bilden den Grundstock für den Sound des Trios.

Im Frühjahr 2011 veröffentlichten WE FADE TO GREY ihr erstes Album mit dem Namen “Disappearances” auf den Labels Asymmetrie und Avant Pop.
