Instore: Mild High Club says
Mild High Club (Los Angeles, CA) [Stones Throw]

Free In-store performance

Wednesday, May 27th 4PM

"If you’ve ever seen Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton, the Stones Throw documentary that focuses on the wildly eclectic and diverse taste of its founder Peanut Butter Wolf, you’ll understand why he signed Ariel Pink collaborator and stone-zone lo-fi oddball Alexander Brettin, who records under the Mild High Club moniker. On “Windowpane” b/w “Weeping Willow,” his debut Stones Throw single, there’s a woozy, harpsichord-heavy, paisley-psych vibe with groovy rhythms under distorted Ween-does-the-Beatles vocal treatments. It’s not totally out-there musically, but with elements of library music, some occasional Clapton-esque guitar wankery, and John Maus-like simplicity, there’s a lot to be said about his enjoyable forthcoming full-length. Much like Gary Wilson in the early '00s, Mild High Club is Stones Throw’s WTF of 2015. His slack-tastic sound will fit nicely against Posse’s perfectly crafted indie rock, and will certainly show more stark contrast against Wire’s taut, muscular post-punk brilliance. This is nonetheless one of the most diverse rock billings of the month." TRAVIS RITTER
