Is your brain starting to work a little more slowly now that the cold weather’s setting in? It may not be beach season anymore, but Wry Climate’s “Low Tide” suits the chilly torpor. Frontman Dan Nelson’s vocals melt into reverb-laden riffs, mirroring the haze in your head. The shoegaze quartet splits its time between Brooklyn and Purchase, NY and is gearing up to release the Radio Tower Pulse EP on November 19. It’s recommended if you like Cheatahs, Real Estate, and daydreaming.
Katie Chow on BlackBook wrote about Wry Climate’s new track “Low Tide” from Radio Tower Pulse, the new Wry Climate EP due out later this month on the 19th.

Also, ever since this went up on BlackBook Mag, the first track from Stephen Malkmus’s first album after Pavement broke up, “Black Book”, has been “permanent-ally” stuck in my head… I’ve always thought it was a brilliant first post-Pavement song, with the spooky ten second intro leading into three thoughtfully composed guitar parts establishing the song’s mysterious mood prior to the drums and full band coming in. No doubt borrowing the idea from Nigel Godrich who produced the last Pavement album Terror Twilight and opened five of the album’s songs with similar intros, Malkmus stepped into his new non-Pavement role in a comfortably familiar way, letting you know he’s still the same dude, before he starts mostly doing whatever he feels like musically for the rest of his life. Ok, enough of me pretending I know how to write about music.
now to get you in the radio tower mood, some photos i took a while back…
