Ian Sweet’s warm post-punk / shoegaze meditates on the long-lasting effects of loneliness: dissecting yourself deeper and deeper in front of the mirror, increasingly alienating you from the immediate surroundings. The Boston-based indie-rock outfit founded by musician Jilian Medford expands the smallest, most insignificant moments into penetrating emotional statements.

The new album Crush Crusher is full of dissonant open chords and abnormal progressions, the beauty exhumed from the internal conflict. To capture this fickle quandary, Medford called in the help of producer Gabe Wax (Deerhunter, The War On Drugs, Soccer Mommy). It’s a record full of unexpected twists, one that throws the listener into the deep, both lyrically and musically. No better location for such a blistering experience than the bottom deck of the V11.
