Boston-based post-punk band Black Beach announce their new album, sharing lead single “Sometimes This Body Lets Me Down.” Yesterday, The 405 premiered the track, praising, “Featuring a hypnotic guitar riff, thunderous drums and a highly emotive vocal performance from Steven Instasi, ‘Sometimes This Body Lets Me Down’ taps into that sense of discontent and discomfort that sits inside of so many young people nowadays. But rather than turn too far inward, the song blasts that disquietude out with a heavy and unblinking attitude.” The band’s upcoming release, Tapeworm, is due out October 11th.

Tapeworm is an album about being a human in the 21st century. The songs touch on many different topics such as climate change, capitalism, nostalgia and the echo chamber in which the internet allows us to exist, though the overarching theme of the record is the anxiety of living in our current political and social climate. The album takes a conscious step away from previous releases which relied heavily on fuzzed out overdubbed guitars and reverb and delay drenched vocals. Tapeworm instead focuses on capturing a very natural, barebones depiction of the music, relying more on dynamics and room sound to create a spacious atmosphere rather than effects units. Tapeworm was recorded over the course of a weekend with Justin Pizzoferrato (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Speedy Ortiz) at Sonelab Studios, and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering.
