Upper Wilds 'Guitar Module 2017' LP
The Brooklyn based Upper Wilds features Dan Friel (Parts and Labor) on guitar and vocals, bassist / vocalist Zach Lehrhoff (Ex Models, Pterodactyl) and drummer Aaron Siegel. Their fuzz-blasted debut Guitar Module 2017 features Friel on guitar and was recorded by Seth Manchester at Machines with Magnets (Battles, The Body, Lightning Bolt). The album marks Friel’s first time incorporating vocals into his music since his days in Parts and Labor, and retains his signature penchant for heavily distorted textures and addictive melodies. This is big, distorted music intended to played loudly, on speakers. Your friends at Upper Wilds and Thrill Jockey do NOT recommend you listen to this on ear-buds, your phone, or your laptop. Guitar Module 2017 is pressed on virgin vinyl and packaged with free download card in a jacket featuring a historic photo of the Mount St. Helens eruption.
