Erl – “Erl” – [Erl Records]

erl

ERL is a record label run by Dave Belem and Jack Wingate out of Albany NY. ERL is also a band on that label, and that band’s first full-length release is titled “ERL”. It sounds to me like a guitar trio, but I can’t find any information about the personnel, other than a cryptic note from “Squealer” included with the vinyl.

Limited to only 100 copies and packaged in a spray-painted recycled record sleeve, the album contains two untitled sidelong tracks of Dead-C-esque free-improv guitar rock. Jagged riffs drenched in feedback and reverb, heavy droning chords and frenetic noodling. A definite crowd-pleaser!

FCC ALERT: Side B starts with a very short track of looped vocals containing repeated “ASSHOLE”. Drop the needle after that and you’ll be fine.
