2014, Dead Oceans

Take the 101 north out of Los Angeles, and you'll pass by Agoura Hills, where the core duo of the band Dub Thompson grew up. Whatever you see in that town won't readily prepare you for the music they wrote while there, but you're free to look. 'Most everyone who’s in a group who's our age lives on the Internet,' says guitarist Matt Pulos. 'The kinds of things that have shaped our band aren't anchored to any one time or place.'

Pulos and his bandmate, drummer Evan Laffer, are currently both 19 years old, and are putting that line of thought to the test; their musical influences travel from the Midwestern malaise of Big Black and Pere Ubu, to Kraut pioneers Can and Kraftwerk, while bowing to the British belligerence of The Fall and This Heat. Recording the album while living with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado at his rented house in Bloomington, the band had its first taste of a heavy Indiana summer, and all the humidity and insect life that buzzes along with it. 'We woke up every day, ate hard-boiled eggs and stood on a porch,' says Pulos of the experience.
