Got a new one out of the sun-baked kiln of Arizona. Fuzzed and scuzzed, but clipping along on with a noise-pop heart, The Sheaves find purchase in the kind of cradle that nurtured the early works of No Age, the hiss-soaked fire of Dead Luke and Nice Face, and even the off-kilter indie pop of Swiftumz. While there’s likely a bit of Guided By Voices in their bloodstream the fuzzed force of “Hit Silly’ hearkens back to a 2010’s heyday for barnacled pop and the The Sheaves seem to be doing that era just right. Somewhere between the bars of this one there’s a lacquered taste of the ill-fated revevial of Rhinegold and sweat-slicked basement floors under bridges and in backrooms. It reeks of tours that lasted 5 days but felt like forever. The band’s new album, Excess Death Cult Time, is out August 23rd on Moone Records.
