Bruce Smear “Pick & Roll”

18 Jul 2014 — Henning Lahmann

Stylishly riding the zeitgeist, Bruce Smear's brand new tune "Pick & Roll" is everything you thought it would be after taking a glance at the cover art of his upcoming Chlorine EP. That probably shouldn't come as a surprise, of course, cause what are you supposed to come up with if you live in Brooklyn in 2014 and spend most of your time playing guitar in Beach Fossils, an amiable outfit that's into that kind of music which was en vogue a few summers ago – you know, when blogs were still a thing. This is post-Internet now, we assume, so fuck your stringed instruments and get out your glacial synth presets already! Seriously though why not, and the result sure is compelling, so go listen below.

The Chlorine EP is out on tape on August 26 via Driftless Recordings. Pre-order your copy over here.
