Scratched Out by AIM LOW

2017-07-04 21:43:02 UTC

New

Montreal experimental band AIM LOW is set to release Scratched Out on 12" format, a record that has been plagued with numerous issues from disappearing band members, lost recording stems, a messed up vinyl test pressing, artwork problems, and numerous other issues. Toss in a hospital visit (via ambulance, no less), and you can understand why the band is happy to finally release this three song collection of dense shoegaze-y drone density in the vein of early-Sonic Youth, Nadja, and Rhys Chatham. AIM LOW practically took everything into their own hands to get the lp out, right down to the spraypainting process of the lp jackets that can be seen here - https://youtu.be/bbZvcHV2HqQ

Lead off track "Tacit Approval" sets the sound for their forthcoming full length, currently being mixed by Jon Drew, bridging the more experimental nature of their now sold out CD-R Foulards and sold out cassette String Theory with a more structured sound based around the controlled chaos surrounding fuzzed out crackling spoken word vocals. The 12"'s centerpiece "Low Hanging Fruit" was recorded in a church in Montreal West to capture as much natural reverb possible to achieve a contextual Beach Boy sound, complete with "oooh" vocals that are heavily processed with the band's penchant for knob-twiddling effects pedals. And closing track "Phantom Cat" is a twelve minute highway ride of multiple layers and textures in the key of A with lung-straining chanting.

AIM LOW has previously played with the likes of Disappears, Weekend, Moon Duo, and Stephen O'Malley, and plan to support Scratched Out with more dates and a tour in the late Summer of 2017.
