Erasers - "Autumn Trees"

First of all, for anyone who actually reads this blog - I apologize for the lack of updates. Even though I don't see life slowing down anytime soon, I plan to manage my time more efficiently and make room for regular posts. There's a lot of good music out there, after all, and I want to make sure I share it with you.

For instance, Australia's Erasers are creating some pretty awesome tunes right now, and their latest release - simply titled Summer - was released last week through the always amazing label Solid Melts.

The release features, among other unique jams, the song "Autumn Trees"; and though it isn't technically fall yet, the song manages to evoke crisp and striking landscapes - hinting, ultimately, that harsh winter months aren't far behind. The percussion, in other words, moves forward in a tribal drone - similar to Liars or HEALTH - and the haunting vocals, echoing acts like Pocahaunted, play out like chants for a mysterious forest gathering. What is most impressive, however, is the seemingly random but perfectly appropriate guitar and synth work; listen as it vacillates somewhere between dark New Order rhythms and exotic ambient textures.

The tape is limited to 50 copies, so hurry and cop that shit while you can - and check out this Solid Melts compilation while you're at it.
