American Culture at Bloodbuzzed

Hailing from Denver (the press release says “they live out in the desert near four corners where Arizona, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico meet“), there’s very few information on a band that, back to the press release, “don’t really want the world to know who they are, personally. Just the music. We even had a hard time tracking them down for this. The tracks and art come to us on a CDR in an envelope with no return address. We have only e-mailed with them. Never spoken. They ask (politely) for no photography during their rare live shows, usually in houses or basements”. They define themsleves as “pop music for introverts”. Which is kind of ironic, in a way, because the majority of ‘Pure American Gum‘, their first record (as far as we know), out next week on Jigsaw Records, is expansive, pure, unadultered, 90s indie-rock. Guided By Voices meeting Dinosaur Jr, Pavement on stereoids, Jesus and Mary Chain high on Coca-Cola. Pop hits.
