Chauncey – Picture Windows 7″ (Synapse, 1998): Today my talented and handsome friend Tim (member of bands like Canadian Rifle, La Mantra De Fhiqria, and many more) is getting married. As luck would have it, I recently picked up an old 7″ by his old band and so decided it would be fitting to post it today.
Having never heard this band, I assumed it would be more chaotic and violent in the vein of La Mantra. But, this slab is more akin to John Brown Battery, Tomsawyer, and Small Brown Bike. It’s melodic, driving, and super memorable. The eponymous first track of the EP, Picture Windows, is the stand out, but the whole thing holds up really well. If you ever see this thing, scoop it up.
Happy wedding day Tim and Jen!
Note: I’m going on tour for two weeks, so I won’t be posting until I get back. Come see me on Boilerman tour if you’re in Canada or the east coast.
