Spider Bags FROZEN LETTER Vinyl Record - Colored Vinyl, Digital Download Included
2014 full length album & first on the Merge label. Formed in 2005, Chapel Hill, North Carolina's Spider Bags were largely a revolving cast, with only Dan McGee (guitars, vocals) persevering through the various incarnations of the band. But during the 2011 recording of Shake My Head, the current lineup consisting of Steve Oliva (bass) and Rock Forbes (drums) was finally solidified. Building upon the foundation laid down by it's predecessor, Frozen Letter rocks with the clairvoyance of three musicians who have spent a lot of time together. "When we started this record, we weren't even thinking about it being released. We just did it to have fun and keep moving forward," says Forbes. This approach allowed the band to push itself further out into the psychedelic frontier than ever before, aided by engineer/producer Wesley Wolfe. Recorded mostly live over the course of a few days, there's an exhilarating urgency to the record, as heard in riff-driven rockers like "Back with You Again in the World" & "Chem Trails". "We Got Problems" comes on like a true acid trip, alternating between utter terror and unfettered joy. Featuring a heavy and repetitive pattern, a slew of effected guitars, & searing guest leads from Superchunk's Mac McCaughan, the song encapsulates an entire Spider Bags epoch in under six minutes.
