Melbourne's Redspencer craft exceptionally warm and sprawling guitar pop. After releasing a well-recieved EP in 2015, the four-piece entered a makeshift suburban studio to record Perks, their full-length debut. "Jazzy, harmony-filled, effervescent, gorgeous" are a few descriptors from BrooklynVegan, who liken Redspencer to Trashcan Sinatras. The band also cite influences Yo La Tengo and Rodriguez, and perfected their analog sound with producer David M. Turner and mastering engineer Josh Bonati (Mac DeMarco, DIIV, Wild Nothing). Lyrically, the record muses on both the existential and the mundane, making for a listen that's just as insightful as it is pleasant.
