Artist: IDLE TIMES
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: HoZac
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Since their inception, Seattles eminently unique noise-benders, IDLE TIMES have enshrouded their unhinged pop dexterity in an entire soiled spectrum of illustrious cloaks, assuring every angle they pursue is leveled with deranged precision. From the instant the lead off track kicks in on their debut LP, its impossible to ignore the bands brainchild, BRIAN STANDEFOD, utilizing an unreal and otherworldly scorching guitar tone, which very well might be what locks you in at first. But on closer listens, its the scraps of distant-yet-familiar sound swatches, seamlessly patched together behind that inimitable guitar and vocal combination that make up the intensely diverse array of songs on their first full-length. Its never been more prominent than on their anxiously-awaited debut LP, where Idle Times are clearly pioneering a sound thats meshing so many degrees of varying styles from track to track, that it becomes easy to get lost in the staggering creativity of each intricate alcove. With such an intense collection of tracks that crush and crackle with deranged delight, Idle Times wield both noisy pop hooks with subdued melodic mastery, and prove that following up Sic Alps/Guided By Voices-style grungy, yet fully jangled scratchy pop hits, with the twang and clang of a fried-out later-era Byrds studio outtake, is truly something fresh and exciting in this never-ending world of recycled ideas and ripped-off innovation. It just doesnt sound like anything else, and as shocking as that may seem, thats most likely why its just so compelling. Initial vinyl pressing of 550 copies." -HoZac

"Debut release from 27 year old Brian Standeford.

Loner bedroom psych at its best. Edition of 500 on black vinyl." -Woodsist
