WLMRT - unknown

WLMRT - Soap Time

Celebrating both their transformation under a new ownership structure as well as the release of a new podcast, Pleasence Records put on a full night of entertainment, keeping busy with alternating sets upstairs and down. I came halfway through after attending an early show and still managed to catch four sets! Recent Pleasence signees WLMRT are one of the more exciting rock'n'roll bands in the city right now, and right at home in a lo-fi environment like the Buddha's slightly grungy basement room. The vox are little more than an insistent rumour at times here, but there's more than enough joyful clamour to make up for it — I especially dig it in the latter song here when the guitar seems to start independently channelling some "Kids Don't Follow" Bob Stinson vibes.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
