Album To Check Out: Eat Skull – III

eat-skullWith a fuzzy and scruffy sound, Portlandia quartet Eat Skull are not far-removed from fellow garage rock bands such as No Age and Times New Viking. Their music pops with noise and are lo-fi in nature, giving it certain DIY-charm.

With their third and newest record, simply titled III, Eat Skull seem to be moving in a different, more mature direction. For one, there seems to be more melody to the songs. For another, there seems to be a willful embrace of electronic synths instead of the more regular guitar shreds in their previous records. And the DIY-aesthetic seem to be less emphasized. Sure, the fuzz and scruff return later, especially in the second half of the record. But I welcome this more fuller sounding Eat Skull.

Stream the first single How Do I Know When To Say Goodnight, embedded below and hear the difference.
