These indie warblers made a mini-shambles with their excellent record record Blessed, so it's to the good that Walter TV are back to make another dream-sequence ruckus. Veering slightly more towards a professional production than past endeavours, they continue to pack hooks in a sound that paraphrases the indie lexicon in corners containing Modest Mouse and the Figurines.
Walter TV are contemporary nomads of Canadian basement origins. ‘Blessed’ was recorded and mixed between the bands shared apartment in Montreal, LA and on tour (whilst members Joe and Pierce were away touring with Mac DeMarco). It’s DIY surf metal, with punk sensibilities and an obvious soft spot for heavy metal shredding.
