What a great name for a band right? Sweaters played one of their very first shows at Space 15 Twenty last year and we are excited that their first 7″ single is finally coming out on Slow Death Records, a double A-Side with tracks “SkyMall” and “Investigations.” [...] Sweaters is like the American Badfinger but not so sad, quite the opposite really… Get ready for some swirling psyche pop!
Luke Top’s music wants to make happy. It’s the sound of driving nowhere on a sunny afternoon. Opener “Lord, Save Me From This Valley” starts the car, then “Infant Rose” pulls the top down, shaking off a few leaves and dried berries before we hit the coastal highway. We arrive at title track, “Friends,” in third gear, jangling tambourine, handclaps, and vocal harmonies. While instruments pile up over the course of the album, adding horns and strings and even some nature sounds to the blend, every note fits in a streamline design: the road is clear, the car is clean, and the passengers smile behind their sunglasses.
