Staff Pick

Every so often here at Repo we like to pick one record that we can all agree on as being the one thing we can't stop listening to. The one we pick today is....

Cold Showers - Love & Regret
(Dais Records)

     Love and Regret is an ambitious offering, combining elements of swirling post-punk with a bit of murky pop haze and a sinister industrial-electronic twist. It’s a rich and intoxicating sound, characterized heavily by Jonathan Weinberg’s brooding vocals, Chris King’s icy cool guitars, relentless drum thuds and dark, reverberating synth textures. The LP wields a few different styles, including dark dance floor burners (“So I Can Grow,” “BC,” “Seminary”) that seek to invigorate, while others like “I Don’t Mind,” “In Terms of Pleasure” and “New Dawn” have a lighter pop edge. (styrofoamdrone.com). Even though Love and Regret seemed to get a bit overshadowed by records from Ty Segall and Tame Impala coming out the same week, all of us at Repo still share a mutual love for it. Listen to the album below and come get one before they're gone!
