‘Pool’ by QUARTERBACKS !
Dean Engle is the young mastermind (and sometime teacher to pay the bills) behind this New York trio. None of their songs lasts longer than two minutes. Engle about their live shows: “We usually play for about fifteen minutes, sometimes even that feels too long. There’s a very short list of bands I want to see play for longer than fifteen minutes.” He has a point on that list. Quarterbacks produce punky indie pop telegrams, definitely all recorded in one take. Gloriously charming. On February 10th they will release a digital full album containing all the songs they released before on two sold out cassettes (bandcamp link beneath). ‘Pool’is my fav one. A few plays and it won’t go away anymore. Lovely !
