This band just keeps getting better and better. Expert Alterations, from Baltimore, previously wowed with a great EP on Slumberland Records. They are now set to drop a new full-length album on Kanine Records in a few months and the first taste -- "The Past and You" -- is here to be savored and enjoyed. The cut, like the rest of the upcoming record, was mixed by Archie Moore, whiz kid from Velocity Girl, Black Tambourine, and the sound mixing on Salad Days (2014). The instruments sound organic and expertly separated here. And, if that wasn't enough to get some music geek love going for this track, the tune is a big one.
This is just a superb example of how to do indiepop. That needs to be said 'cause so many have failed at trying to do exactly what Expert Alterations are doing here with so little apparent heavy lifting.
