Stage Hands
Street: 02.10
Stage Hands = Postal Service + Laurent Chambert
Just in time to usher in spring, this twinkly new release from the Terrorbird label by the veteran musician Bradon Locher is erratic, upbeat and brimming with energy. It’s a short album that’s layered with samples of chirpy sounds that zoom off into space. I loved the untitled sixth track, and wished it was longer. “#unabomber” was a highlight for me even though I felt the track could have survived without the vocals. Otherwise, it’s a cool jam that maintains a level of maturity and newness that will keep listeners coming back for more. I’m excited to see what Stage Hands have in store for the future. –Kamryn Feigel
