If you’re looking for some straight up guitar driven rock, you need look no further than this track called “Dog Go Bark” from Brooklyn based Washer. This one is a perfect example of less is more with a simple, heavy distorted guitar and some drums. Think Wavves, but even a bit more broken down. I’m thinking this one will be perfect to take you into the last weekend of summer.
Washer will release All Aboard via Exploding in Sound on September 15th.
Looks like Exploding In Sound Records continue to build on their already solid roster, this time with the addition of Washer. Yesterday this tune came out on the airwaves, and I’ve been blasting it ever since. It has a nostalgic sort of Pavement feel, combined with the modern arty-indifference being popularized in NYC these days. Look for the band’s debut, Here Comes Washer, on January 22nd, just a few days after my birthday…in case you’re buying me a gift.
I was immediately hooked on this new Washer single; it’s got discordant guitars ringing in your ear, but the vocal is what really got me into the tune. There’s a familiarity in it, almost like early Braid, but then it takes on a scratchy yell to add some emphasis towards the end. In less than two-minutes the band packs a huge punch to your eardrums, but they don’t stick around long enough to wear you out. This tune’s definitely winning me over, which encourages me to pick up the band’s Split EP with Flagland when it hits on May 5th.
