Watter 'History Of The Future' LP
Sophomore album from acclaimed trio of Zak Riles (Grails), Tyler Trotter (Strike City),and Britt Walford (Slint). Features guest members of Rachel’s, Tortoise, Torres, Shipping News, and more. When Watter first appeared fully formed in 2014 as a trio featuring founding members of Grails and Slint, most assumed the mercurial group would vanish into the ether just like the foggy echoes of sound they crafted on their debut album, This World. Instead, they toured the US with their longtime friends in Om, and returned home to begin work on an ambitious new recording studio, from which their new album, History of the Future was born. Located on the same tiny rural Kentucky road as the old Rove Studio, where many Will Oldham records were made, multi-instrumentalist Zak Riles’ new studio – dubbed Earthwave – was literally built from the ground up on the rolling hills of his picturesque farm.
