Creepoid - Cemetary Highrise Slum LP
Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release by the indie/alt-rock band. After releasing two albums with No Idea, an EP for Graveface, and countless miles logged on the road, Philadelphia's Creepoid lands at Collect Records for Cemetery Highrise Slum-a document of stunning growth that finally crystallizes the promise of an already feverishly loved band. Produced and mixed by Peter Mavrogeorgis (The National, Sharon Van Etten) at Dollhouse Studios in Savannah, GA, Creepoid have stripped away at the reticence of previous albums for a bold and focused effort that places equal measure on high definition and playful ambiguity alike. That critics have never quite been able to contain Creepoid's style-they've been called everything from punk and psych to dream-pop and grunge-is not as much a conflict as it is a statement, and on Cemetery Highrise Slum, the band finds itself at this idiosyncratic intersection of their own design: This is how it feels when a feisty, aggressive impulse agrees to be led by a firm, but graceful hand.
