SPB exclusive: NVM by Fleabite

SPB exclusive: NVM by Fleabite

Fleabite - NVM

Our featured stream at Scene Point Blank is the brand new EP NVM from Fleabite and Salinas Records.

The 6-song EP, which is officially out on June 29, shows the band’s mastery of mid-tempo fuzzy rock with an homage to 1990’s slacker charm. The guitar-driven sound was captured by John Hoffman and Jerri Queen (both of Vacation) who did the recording and mixing, which was then mastered by Kyle Gilbride (Swearin’).

Rather than tell you what to think of the record, give it a listen yourself below:

Fleabite is split between Brooklyn and Philadelphia. Guitarist Ali Donohue has also spent time as a touring member of Waxahatchee and Swanning, drummer Joe McCann and guitarist Jade Payne play in Aye Nako and bassist Chelsea Dirck plays in Yowler and Missing Earth. The record is available for pre-order now.

Restorations LP5000

Restorations LP5000

Restorations have announced their first release since LP3 in 2014. The band, who released their last effort on SideOneDummy, will return to Tiny Engines (who released their first album) for the upcoming release, set to come out in September.

 “I felt like things were starting to crack a little,” singer/guitarist Jon Loudon says of the time off as they put together LP5000. “While playing shows is fun, touring full-on like that is awful after a while. I can’t speak for the rest of the group, but I needed some time to get my brain back together.”

The band will be playing a few shows on the East Coast this summer as well.

Track listing:
1. St.2. Nonbeliever3. Remains4. Melt5. The Red Door6. Caretaker7. Eye
