Muscle Drum – “Compromise”

New SF label Break Up recently released the first LP from Muscle Drum, the solo home recording project of Bronze‘s Robert Spector. Spector’s demos had previously been circulated on CD-Rs, and this LP collects a set of hazy synth-pop songs that periodically calls to mind Ariel Pink’s early works.
