Long delayed full length from Chicago's (by way of Oak City, NC and Alexandria, VA) post-noise/damaged indiepop quartet. Following the electronic cut and paste experiments of their Oak City EP, Joshua Grubman, Lisa Shelley, and Trevor de Brauw began to reconfigure their music for live performance, enlisting guitarist Billy Baumann to help expand their sound. The resulting five songs are a vast reconceptualization of Teith's idiosyncratic style, crammed to the seams with infectious melodies, cascading waves of gently pummeling distortion, and a unique sense of structuralism that is the band's hallmark. Veering from catacomb depths of apocalyptic doom to stratospheric heights of bristling post-apocalypse rallying anthems, Humboldt Park is the final document of a band that exemplifies Dr. Eldon Tyrell's old proxy "the light that burns twice as bright burns half as long." Available digitally and in a strictly limited edition of 100 vinyl copies pressed on 180 gram vinyl and packaged in custom screen-printed sleeves.
