Relaxer
Relaxer
Relaxer is an Akron, Ohio based passive progressive rock band comprised of guitarist Jamie Stillman (The Party of Helicopters, Teeth of the Hydra, Drummer [ft. the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney], EarthQuaker Devices), vocalist/guitarist Joe Scott (White Pines), bassist Corey Haren (Mount Ratz), drummer Bradley Thorla (Hell’s Information, Sofa King Killer), a fog machine, and a shitload of lasers, Relaxer has spent the first half of the 21st century dropping jaws and blowing minds with their blend of hesher riffs, effects-driven soundscapes, psychedelic explorations, captivating stage presence, and the postmodern everyman earnestness of Joe Scott’s reverb-laden vocal delivery.
Relaxer went into the studio in January of 2013 with producer/engineer Chris Koltay (renowned for his work with My Morning Jacket, Swans, and Deerhunter) to record their first full-length album titled Lasers. The album was recorded live over the course of a week at High Bias Studio in Detroit and mixed throughout the summer. It was then meticulously mastered at Timeless Mastering by Heba Kadry, whose resume includes The Mars Volta, Wooden Ships, and The Sea & Cake. The end result is 5 song full length which is both a visceral and progressive sonic journey clocking in at just under 50 minutes.
Relaxer spent the last two years in writing mode, constructing the multilayered compositions that make up their new album Unreal/Cities which was released on Friday, October 13, 2017 by EarthQuaker Devices Records.
Dome Dwellers
"Dome Dwellers deal in herbal-scented pop music that sounds not unlike Kings of Leon covering the flaming lips in a kettle, surrounded by a plethora of mind-expanding drugs --- Swerving wildly between the twin beaks of psychedelic pop and out-and-out stoner aggression, [Lie Down] it's one of those tracks that can't help to bring to mind the freak-show spazz outs of Sonic Youth at their peak. --- 'Say it ain't so' should be piped in to prisons across the world in order to reduce inmate violence with its charming guitars sounding like a psychedelic representation of Fugazi unplugged, if you can imagine such a thing. With Cullen Dean's bass playing an important role underpinning Michael J Slack's flights of art-rock fancy and David Gore apparently imagining he's in a jazz band, the music takes all manner of unexpected deviations and it's a simple pleasure to try to anticipate what the band will do next. ---They're the sort of band you'll want to play to your friends and the sort of band that will (and deserve to) inspire a loyal following that will undoubtedly cross oceans to see them play live. --- 'Maybe I should have some pride' is a great record that'll leave you with a huge smile on your face – gloriously, wonderfully unique, it has no immediate peers and it's simply a joyous experience from its atypical start to its distortion-laden conclusion." - Sonic Abuse (United Kingdom)
