Workday/Schoolnight

Since I seem to be breaking out of my habit (if you can call it that, after just 15 posts) of only putting up old seven inches, I thought I would take a moment to direct you guys toward Workday/Schoolnight, a solo outfit out of Greensboro, NC, home of the now-defunct Rebar and Raymond Brake, who have enjoyed previous posts here. Unlike those bands' mid-90s math rock, W/S creates a solid Krautrock-meets-Synthpop amalgam infused with a healthy dose of found sounds, which arrive courtesy hundreds of audio cassettes discovered while combing through thrift stores and pawn shops throughout the South. Lots of answering machine messages and old self-help tapes. It's good stuff.
