Defektors Explore The Bottom of the City on Debut Full-Length
Published Feb 26, 2010On the heels of two excellent seven-inch singles, Vancouver-based post-garage punk trio Defektors have finally announced the details for their debut long-player. The album comes five years into the band's existence, and should continue to showcase their penchant for dreary but addictive songwriting and rhythmic, eerie post-punk.
Called The Bottom of the City, the album features nine tracks and clocks in at just under 30 minutes. Fans of the first two seven-inches will note by the tracklisting that the album does contain previously released material, but all of the songs have been re-recorded and given new life.
With its ominous cover art (which you can see here) courtesy of Nü Sensae's Andrea Lukic, The Bottom of the City will be co-released by Nominal Records and Grotesque Modern at the beginning of March. Defektors will then spend April touring the West coast with label-mates Vapid, though the shows are still being booked.
In the meantime, "Never Really Tried" can be streamed at the band's MySpace page.
