I Blame You (2009, Sub Pop):
Brooklyn's Obits are Rick Froberg (Hot Snakes, Drive like Jehu, Pitchfork), Sohrab Habibion, Greg Simpson, and Scott Gursky. In December 2008, they released their first single, "One Cross Apiece" b/w "Put It in Writing" on their own Stint Records label. This is their debut full-length.

Moody, Standard and Poor (2011, Sub Pop):
On red vinyl! The answer to the question, "Are Obits 'indie rock veterans'?" is yes and no. Yes, they are accomplished musicians who once fronted Drive Like Jehu, Edsel, Hot Snakes, and Pitchfork. But also; No, they are not active or retired members of the United States military. It's good to get these things sorted out. Don't worry—there are no dumb questions. Are Obits a young band? They are. Another good question. A child born in 2007, when Greg Simpson joined as bassist, would not yet be in kindergarten. Obits didn't self-release their first single ("One Cross Apiece" b/w "Put It in Writing") until late 2008. Their debut LP, I Blame You, wasn't released until March 2009. Does their stripped-down rock incorporate elements of surf and garage? Absolutely it does. The members of Obits are fans of oldies. They generally dislike newies. But their influences simmer in the crock-pot of human creativity; you will find only disappointment if you try to deduce the muse of any given song.

What of this Obits' record? It's called Moody, Standard and Poor. It was recorded at Brooklyn's Saltlands Studio by Eli Janney and Geoff Sanoff. How will Moody, Standard and Poor make you feel? The short answer is: great. Not Smoking-An-Eightball-Of-Coke great. But Alive-To-New-Listening Experiences great. The long answer is that these twelve songs will take you on a series of emotional road trips. Some will be as brief as a walk to the fridge. Others will be epic pilgrimages to the shady hinterlands of your subconscious. Great records can do this. Moody, Standard and Poor is no exception.

Bed and Bugs (2013, Sub Pop):
Bed and Bugs is the third album by Brooklyn, NY garage-punkers Obits. Bed and Bugs was recorded somewhere in Arlington, VA at an unnamed recording studio, simply and rather unhelpfully described as "upstairs." It was recorded by Nikhil Ranade, with additional mixing by Eli Janney and Geoff Sanoff. On listening to Bed and Bugs, the discerning listener may well note more than a passing similarity to such bands as Hot Snakes, Edsel, Drive Like Jehu, Girls Against Boys, Pitchfork, possibly Television or the Wipers. With the exception of those last two, Obits share members with all of those bands.
