The Deadstock 33s

The Deadstock 33s

简介:‘A kind of rural backwater psychedelia’ is how the Deadstock 33 describe themselves. From the restless and productive mind of Justin Robertson, it’s as good an entry point as any to a world both bewitching and new.  A year in the making, Deadstock 33’s debut album takes a real breadth of sounds and influences weaving them together into a live sound that sees Justin heading off into uncharted sonic waters.  Justin Robertson is no stranger to live music having played tours and festival with his band Lionrock and pop art renegades Thee Earls. With Deadstock 33 however he’s turned the club elements that he’s best known for into a dynamic sound steeped in a stranger, timeless vibe - like Arthur Russell producing the fractured fragility of third album Big Star.  Over ten tracks the result is a record of hopped-up murder ballads with a slightly Balearic feel that crosses swords with slow motion grooves that forge a link between the acid of both San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury and Chicago’s Trax.  “I’ve met a lot of people over the years touring with bands,” explains Justin. “And I’ve been making music long enough to put aside any notion of genre or fashion. The Deadstock 33's has been in my head for a long time but only ever in the abstract until now. Working on this album has transformed the way I write and given me the opportunity to head off into jaunty Balearic pop as well some darker musical spaces. I’m really pleased with whats been achieved so far.”  Lyrically the Deadstock 33's explores a similarly unique territory. From tales of the to MPs frolicking on Hampstead Heath,to a church going couple who spend their sunday's despatching parishioners in the woods, it’s the dark stuff make no mistake,but There are also chinks of light in the dark; with life affirming psychedelic pop and good time acid disco stirred into the blend. What unites all the songs however is an urge to get under the skin of society and shine a flashlight on what is found, turning the evidence back into a remarkable musical document that mirrors our weird wide world.
