Half-buried under the sludginess of its own weight, “Pivot Fakie” is the blistering new track from Pardoner, the latest to be released from their forthcoming new album on Father/Daughter, and one that we’re very pleased to share with you today. Released next month, the new record channels Max Freeland and Trey Flanigan’s “shared love of Yo La Tengo and Polvo” into a 45-minute beast of a record, and one of the Autumn’s most imposing documents.
Unveiled today, Pivot Fakie is indicative of such aspirations, the tightly-knit atmosphere suddenly unravelling amid a scorched backdrop of thick guitars and frenetic percussion, both of which do their mighty best to swallow the scrappy lead vocal that powers its way through regardless.
Like a ugly meeting of genres that somehow melds its way in to something electrifying, that burns with a furious kind of prettiness, Pivot Fakie is another huge leap forward from the quartet – and you can stream it to your hearts content right here today; the full record arrives on September 8th.
