The braintrust at Burger Records have severely progressed as a label since the days of Thee Makeout Party’s singles and Nobunny’s Raw Romance LP. Which, to be honest, feels like yesterday…. Fast-forward years later and Fullerton’s boys have sold (likely) close to a hundred thousand tapes, aside from having a full-fledged roster of desired and sought after artists. If you’re in the East Bay area, chances are you’ve heard of Once & Future Band. The Brain EP is a wild one. Its title track is nine minutes in length and probably took a fucking year to write. It’s prog rock for sure, but I’m hearing more ELO on some of these tracks rather than King Crimson. Insanely well-recorded and strong debut release.
