THE DEATH SET
Following the huge success of their first 2 releases on Rabbitfoot/Morphius, the Death Set signed to Ninja Tune/Counter Records for their 'Worldwide' release, and followed that with the Michel Poiccard LP before recently signing with Dim Mak. Somewhere along the way,. someone at google realized what we had known about a decade before: The Death Set belonged in every household in the world. Maybe not the band itself, but at least a laptop with kids playing The Death Set's massive "Negative Thinking" track while they ran around breaking stuff. Respect! Viva Beau Velasco Velasco.

Preorder the color vinyl by email now to make sure you get your copy before all the copies of the first pressing are gone. We'll be shipping out copies the last week of September...less than two weeks from now!
Simmering in the midst of a quirky and prolific Nashville indie rock scene, Character riffs with a sidereal intuition of filtered rock and enigmatic sounds. Terse and bright, witty and catastrophic, rhythmic and stylish, Character’s album We Also Create False Promises offers an abstracted sound landscape reminiscent of a waking dream.
Character is a blend of irregular rockers that reflect an extremely accomplished artisanship. William Tyler (of Lambchop, and guitarist on the most recent Silver Jews album) brings his ambient shoe-gazer wash to the mix. Ryan Norris provides keyboards while Luke Schneider (also in Lylas) hallucinates on theremin. Dave Paulson (beloved singer of The Privates) offers topiary guitar licks, while Scott Martin on drums anchors the out fit with cascading rhythms and deftly played fills.
Smoothing the band’s abstract sonic imagery is the legendary producer/engineer Roger Moutenot, whose production work with Yo Lo Tengo, Lou Reed, and Sleater Kenny has forged a reputation of both commercial success and critical acclaim. Backing the releases is Nashville’s most prolific imprint, Fictitious records, hot off the success of the Cucumbers recent comeback and following up their highly sought after 7-inch release of Universal Records Artist The Features.
Assembled in the creative nexus of the post-modern south, Character’s destiny is a subtext of surreal acetates and time shifting melodies, a fully realized mosaic of art, illusion, and the drifting shadows of acoustic undertow.
