Split release between Tor Johnson Records (Tyler Daniel Bean, Weak Teeth, Best Practices), Lunchbox Records (Car Vs. Driver, Sled, Yardwork) and Self Aware Records.
This is the 2nd record from Late Bloomer, following the release of the 2013 S/T debut LP and hot off the heels of their split 7″ w/ Old Flings released by Kiss of Death Records.
The band is more mature and focused on this release with amazing production by Kris Hilbert of Legitimate Business. The record was mastered by Carl Saff (You Blew It!, Speedy Ortiz, Drug Church). The art was once again done by Michael Muller, who is the Pettibon to their Black Flag, at this point.
The album features 9 tracks of punk/indie that brings to mind Dinosaur, Jr., Husker Du, and Jawbox, all the while maintaining a clear identity that doesn’t feel like a 90s rehash. It definitely feels fresh and current.
Use your own ears though, and draw your own conclusions.
