FIRST LISTEN: FIDLAR 'SHIT WE RECORDED IN OUR BEDROOM'
Look, FIDLAR (Facebook // Twitter), you may have recorded these 4 tracks in your bedroom, but they are anything but shit. Unless you're implying 'yo, these songs are the shit,' which in that case, you're correct. For new listeners, this is straight forward, careless rock/post-punk/just-press-play-and-enjoy music. I'd give a description of these LA punks, but I think theirs will work better:
FIDLAR are slackers at heart. The only thing they really care about is skateboarding; trivial things like doing their homework and making the grade in school have little meaning to them. But when their adopted Vietnamese brother turns up dead after discovering an error in the shipping records at his place of work, FIDLAR begins to suspect something more. Refusing to accept the police's theory of suicide, FIDLAR launches their own investigation, determined to uncover the truth of what really happened to their brother.
