Recommendation of the Week: Knifeplay - Pearlty

On their new album, Pearlty, Knifeplay rip at the seams of the standard shoegaze formula, taking saturated distortion and glueing it together with garage sale synthesizers, occasional snippets of dialogue and alt-country slide guitar. The album’s drowsy, irreverent chaos is a perfect vessel for slacker acquiescence, a collage full of weed thoughts, cool ranch Doritos and disaffected lethargy.
