Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

With a lineup consisting of members of Chook Race and Ausmuteants, it’s not a shock that School Damage are a scrappy, punky lo-fi treat of a band. Taking inspiration from minimalist post-punk acts like Young Marble Giants and post-C-86 bands like the Vaselines, while adding a large portion of the low-key charms of the best Flying Nun groups, their self-titled debut album fits in with the many other contemporary bands, like Beef Jerk and the Stevens, trying out their own particular blends of this sound. School Damage carve out their own space in the flood of bands by having two really strong songwriters and a very tight and tough guitar-bass-drums-keys setup. Carolyn Hawkins (of Chook Race) writes very nice melodies and slightly whimsical words, and sings in a candy-sweet fashion. Jake Robertson (of Ausmuteants) balances her style with a shouty, insistent punk approach that might be a bit much over the course of an entire album, but works perfectly in this setting. For every introspective, almost delicate song of hers that displays a tender touch, like “Distance,” there’s one of his, like “School Damage Rockers,” that kicks up a cloud of dust. Not that Robertson sticks to punchy punk alone; he also turns in “Try Something New,” a nicely melancholic ballad. Not to be outdone, Hawkins takes a crack at rocking a bit on the snarky “Gasbagging” and knocks it dead. School Damage is a great debut album that may be a one-off or it may be the start of something beautiful. Either way, the album and the band are fine additions to the steady stream of first-rate noisy indie pop flowing out from down under.

Genre: Folk
Year: 2017
Size: ~ 273 mb
Source: Digital Download
Format: FLAC (tracks)
Quality: lossless
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

Sammy Brue embodies the kind of wisdom, talent and natural empathy that are often signs of age and maturity, and yet at 15 years old, Brue can place himself in the shoes of others, real or fictionalized, and write stories about them. The Ogden, UT based songwriter has been writing songs since the age of 10. He signed to New West Records at 14 and now, with his debut album in hand, Sammy Brue takes the next step forward. The forthcoming album, I Am Nice, produced by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) and John Paul White (former Civil Wars) will be released June 9, 2017. Recorded in Florence, AL, they created a brilliant album with nuanced dimension that provides emotional resonance to Brue’s songs which Rolling Stone described as “a collection of devastatingly beautiful songs that touch on heartbreak, jealousy, God and suicide.” Rolling Stone would further declare Brue “an Americana prodigy.” Though Sammy may appear quiet and unassuming, his songs speak volumes. From busking at Sundance at age 10, to opening for Justin Townes Earle, John Paul White, Lucinda Williams and John Moreland to mention a few, as well as performing at Summer Set and the Newport Folk Festival, you will be hearing a lot about Sammy Brue as he stands on the precipice of what appears to be a long and ever-evolving creative journey.
