New Jersery’s “living room punk” three-piece, Brick Mower, are about to release Teenage Graceland on the 25th of March (see Artist to Watch profile). Before their record release show this Friday at The Acheron, we talked touring, baking, burritos and more.
Job Advert: Brick Mower are on the lookout for a touring drummer. If interested, please contact the band.
MSL: Teenage Graceland is your third album, and your second on Don Giovanni records, what was the recording process like? Did you try anything new or do you know what you want before entering the studio?
Brick Mower: The recording process for this record was definitely a different experience. In the past it’s been so rushed and stripped, which was what we wanted at the time. But this record is, while for sure unpolished, a bit more nuanced and a little more time was taken. We also just had more ideas for this record as opposed to being completely 100% song oriented. Also, I feel like this record is a good representation of us as a band, and what we wanted to do when we first originated.
