KINDLING, a side project of members of AMPERE, have released a short follow up to their mid-2016 LP ‘Everywhere Else’, featuring tracks recorded at the same time as the original session. The new effort comes out on cassette via Old Flame Records and 12” vinyl via Adagio830 & Echo Canyon Records. The new outing serves a perfect supplement surging many moody elements into something quite captivating. KINDLING have discovered another kind of heaviness through lovely, shimmering melodies.
Kindling is comprised of my good buddies Stephen and Andy who also play in WMass hardcore outfit Ampere, as well as Gretschen (who plays guitar and sings) and Andrew, who plays bass. I can tell you these people have the most solid musical knowledge I know… While it would be easy to compare them to My Bloody Valentine, a closer listen will also led you to find evident traces of Superchunk guitar riffs, Teenage Fanclub and Jesus & Mary Chain melodies to serve a very personnal and unique sound…
They blur they dreamy melodies into a wall of a massive fuzz sounds with a a pop sensibility rarely found when the volume and attack ends up this far in the red.
While they spent a week at Sonelab in rural Easthampton, MA with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, Sonic Youth, etc.) to record their first full length Galaxies for the amazing No Idea Records in Florida, they cut 6 extra songs for this euro-only release ! Adagio 830 and Echo Canyon team up one more timeto bring you this amazing EP for you !
