More exciting new stuff from our desks this week with Jacksonville/Gainesville-based instrumental rockers Carpadium. The trio is set to release their full length LP What You Need this month, recorded in between a busy schedule playing with acts like The Fall of Troy, ASIWYFA, Animals as Leaders, and CHON. In this exclusive stream of What You Need‘s second track ‘Lars Needs A Vacation’, Carpadium prove that they’ve got a bank of riffs on offer, all fresh from the factory line.
‘Lars Needs A Vacation’ opens with a guitar melody akin to All Hail Bright Futures-era ASIWYFA. What follows is an array of groovy and slightly ajar guitar and bass riffs complexly punctuated by shifting time changes. The track concludes with a heavy palm-muted finish, begging the question: where to from here? Guess we’ll just have to wait it out.
