From the heart of Brooklyn, in that hipster’s Mecca that is Williamsburg, Dave Longstreth’ collective recovered the finest art-rock spirit and offered an album that totally matched his ambitions, two years after hitting headlines with their peculiar reinterpretation of Black Flag´s hardcore classic “Rise Above”.

Released on Domino. Available to listen in Spotify.
