Busses – Celestial Shore and The Interest Group

“Take it down and tear it apart.” Busses frontman Dave Brett delivers the words like a mission statement on “Metal,” a new song announcing a step forward for a band that’s made its name around its native Philadelphia for stretching the parameters of indie rock. Both that song and “Shangrila” capture the trio at ease, leisurely adrift, stretching out grooves and suspending melodies in between. Bright chords drift out of Brett’s guitar amp bathed in warm colors as his elastic voice reaches into higher registers while Jason Bachman’s pillowy synthesizer and bass set a pulse reinforced by Nick Apice’s shuffling, syncopated drumming. It’s a bold step away from the punk and progressive rock influences worn proudly and unpredictably on its eponymous debut, but that’s not to say the band has lost its taste for the bombastic. It’s just that now, the music swells into overdrive where it may have once sprinted, inviting us to savor the ride.

Celestial Shore’s debut EP California Eden clocks in at four tracks in seven minutes flat. In that brief span, it shifts gears recklessly between multithreaded, intensely melodic motifs – the collected effect is one of gunning your ’41 woody straight off the pier, smack through the loop-de-loop, and out into the surf. The Brooklyn trio followed this EP with the Place Aux Dames 7″ on Double Denim Records, and an all-analog split tape with Shopping Spree out last year on Prison Art.

The band will release their debut full-length record entitled 10x on September 3, via Hometapes and Brad Oberhofer’s Local Singles Records. Mixed by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), 10x expands on Celestial Shore’s earlier outings with more fully-developed song structures, offering more room to employ its growing bag of tricks – the odd beats dropped here or there, muscly breakneck spazzouts, and ecstatic wind-up reveries that immediately distinguish their sound and feel.

The Interest Group (disambiguation) is a voluntary association that seeks to publicly promote and create advantages for its cause. They use various forms of advocacy to influence public opinion and play an important part in the development of social systems. No lobbying. No corruption. No fraud.
