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.
What You Need will be out on the 26th of February via Carpadium’s Bandcamp page. In the meantime, stay in touch via their Facebook.
