KEEPERS: Blasé: 7”

Blasé is the debut release from Keepers, a San Diego three-piece featuring members of the Soft Pack and Plateaus. What you get here is Gang Of Four-styled post-punk, anchored by a dancey rhythm section (featuring a very pronounced, bouncy bass), punctuated with shards of abrasively intricate and crunchy guitar, and with vocals with a touch of British affectation. It’s a nice introduction to the band. Looking forward to checking out future output from these folks.   –Jeff Proctor (Volar)
