Schlotman Stairs

The second song off of Schlotman’s debut 7” is out now. And it’s pretty damn heavy.

“Joint Custody” is the uglier, darker, more ferocious cousin to A-side “Oakland,” charged by a chugging bass line and a crashing chorus. Then, three-and-a-half minutes into the track, you get a taste of garage rock doom, a quicksand drumbeat bolstered by squealing guitars, like Ty Segall on Quaaludes. If you’ve wondered just how loud and furious Schlotman can get, “Joint Custody” pretty much answers that question.

The 7” can be purchased via Bandcamp or in person at various hip record stores across the city, including Ameoba, Aquarius and 1-2-3-4 Go! down on Valencia.
