FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The Steersmen have released their debut LP record, “High-Tech Low Lifes.” The album contains 11 original tracks for 35 minutes' listening time. It has been released on the Blue Morpho Recordings music label. Part indie, part psychedelic and part shoegaze rock, “High-Tech Low Lifes” stands as the definitive Steersmen record and heralds the beginning of what is sure to be a long and storied music career.

The Steersmen cite as main artistic influences Cotton Mather, John Maus, and Deerhunter. Certain attributes of each make up the groovy, sonic amalgam that is the Steersmen sound, but none so much as Cotton Mather. Followers of the legendary indie group will be greatly enthused to hear “High-Tech Low Lifes,” as will fans of Pink Floyd and John Bonham. Highly stylized, infused with retro frills and charged with that unmistakable shoegazer gravitas, “High-Tech Low Lifes” has a great deal of variety, complexity, and scope of emotion.

The band's official bio describes their album as having a “hazy, dream-like atmosphere, percussive and deep drums, and introspective lyrics.” The lyrics, in fact, deserve mention outside the context of their musical accompaniment. Rhyme schemes on “High-Tech...” are often carried consistently throughout entire tracks. Multisyllabic word matches are the norm from song to song, producing a hypnotic effect that deceptively begins to feel usual. Come for the music; stick around for the striking wordplay.

The Steersmen are a duo from Chicago, IL. Their first official release, an EP titled “Later That Night,” continues to garner positive reviews in the looming shadow of their debut full-length record. Speaking of the themes of “High-Tech Low Lifes,” they write,

“A lot of artists create as a way of expressing their feelings, but we sort of wanted to do the exact opposite of that on this record. It's really all about escapism and creating a mini, alternate reality inside the headphones.”

Mission (very) accomplished.

“High-Tech Low Lifes” by the Steersmen is available online worldwide beginning 11 April 2014. Get in early.
