Starting back in 2014, Polyvinyl Records has been running a little DIY experiment in which they have artists self-record on a 4-track cassette recorder and then pass it on to another artist to record something of their own. In this past, this 4-track singles series, has featured music from artists like Diet Cig, Beach Slang, Mothers, Beach Slang, Twin Peaks, Modern Baseball, and Japanese Breakfast.
The California post-punkers dive right back into their signature sound with this fast-paced, upbeat track as the first new music since their critically-acclaimed album Cody, which came out last October. The band has been gaining a lot of attention as a result of their fourth record and they might “never be the same again.” But with the choice to participate in this self-recorded cassette series, Joyce Manor reminds listeners with the fuzzy “NBTSA” of their beloved roots in the DIY punk rock scene.
Joyce Manor will be on a UK tour with Martha in July. See the dates below.
“NBTSA” is a contribution to Polyvinyl’s 2017 4-Track Singles Series. Subscribe here to get an exclusive 7″ self-recorded by your favorite artists in the mail each month.
