EVENING MEETINGS: Forgotten in Seconds: 7”

Evening Meetings features members of Seattle scene darlings A-Frames, AFCGT, Factums, and Love Tan. I can sum this 7” single up in a word though, and that word is “monotonous.” The recording is echo-y, sounding like it was recorded in a box hundreds of feet away from the microphones, and each of the two songs feel like they drag on way longer than they need to. There’s a lo-fi, shoegaze vibe to this, but the repetitive riffing and distant-sounding recording did nothing for me.
