On March 4, 2014, Each Other will release their first LP, Being Elastic, on Lefse Records. Recorded to tape in their home-built studio in Montreal between tours across Canada, Europe and the U.S., Being Elastic is a document of a band always trying to move further out in terms of songwriting and production. Initial recordings were shelved in favor of starting over, as new songs piled up and intra-band shreddery intensified. The restless energy that defines their work habits shows up everywhere in their music. The songs have a solid foundation in avant-rock-pop traditions but are thwarted from sounding like any kind of reverent tribute to what’s come before by being adventurous and exploratory. Surprise breaks, abrupt left-turns, tangled riffage, sidelong-glancing lyrics and Space Echo murk all punctuate the full-throated harmonies, artful melody and bright, ringing tone that makes up the core of these songs. At every turn, this is a record that sounds forward-looking but not futuristic, meticulously constructed but not formulaic or predictable. It's the sound of three people working hard on their own terms, without a promo budget or obnoxious social media hustling, to make a record that speaks for itself.
