New music released on Friday (Sept. 30) by Warehouse, their album super low is out via Bayonet Records. The title track sets the tone for the album, growling avant-punk vocals reel you in and the melody sets you free. The band was influenced by greats such as REM, Pylon and B-52’s and you can hear the post-punk overlying power in the drive of the music and the band’s energy. This five-piece band is out of Atlanta and members are Alex, Ben, Doug, Elaine, and Josh. I was hooked seeing this band perform at The End here in Nashville a few short months ago, you can read the live review here. The album is available for your buying pleasure through the Bayonet Records site and the first pressing of the record is on emerald-green vinyl, including 10 tracks in smooth extension from the last album, Tesseract.
Largely written in a notorious punk house that was torn down to build a parking garage, the album was finished in a new environment: across from a food mart called ‘super low.’ The title connotes stark change, but it also hints at the additional psychological undertones of the album’s meaning, to move down into more darkly subconscious and deeply endogenous areas of yourself in order to work through them and out. Also contrastingly literal, it denotes Warehouse’s self-evident, uncontrived and rough-around-the-edges nature.
