New Jersey-based punk trio just dropped their new album All At Once in all their resounding DIY glory.
Released via indie record label Don Giovanni Records, the album serves as the band’s seventh overall and is a follow-up to 2015’s highly acclaimed Rose Mountain. The 15-track effort has been dubbed as the punk trio’s “most expansive and imaginative work to date,” and one whose arrangements are “meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live shows.”
Reviews are already pouring in with much praise and acclaim. Pitchfork rated the album 8.0 and Stereogum promptly declared it the Album of the Week.
“When you’ve been a band for 12 or 13 years, the resources can dry up and you just go back to what feels comfortable,” drummer Jarrett Dougherty explains in a statement.
“The other option is that you develop stuff that a younger band would not have been able to do.”
The band’s sound has definitely added on more layers. Through the years, Screaming Females have stuck fervently to the indie way, producing their punk styled music within a D.I.Y framework, often booking their own shows and self-releasing their own albums without a record label.
Now, for the first time ever, their screeching punk sound is being woven together with instruments such as synths, wurlitzers, and xylophones, all new to the band’s sound.
All At Once was recorded in London Bridge Studio and Red Room in Seattle alongside producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Russian Circles) with a cameo appearance by Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty, who have audibly added to the band’s sound and feel.
