MUISIC NEWS- Guster's releasing their first album in four years, Evermotion, fearlessly experimenting with new instruments and collaborations to create their most vibrant album yet. Produced by Shins keyboardist/Black Keys bassist Richard Swift, who has produced records for Damien Jurado, Foxygen and Stereolab, the new album bulldozes inhibitions, propelling the band to a harder-charging, more freewheeling sound.
Evermotion will be out January 13 as a joint release by Nettwerk Records and Guster’s own label Ocho Mule. Listen to the utterly infectious new single “Simple Machine” below from MNN. TIME hails its “frantic beats and crawling synthesizers”.
The quartet of Ryan Miller, Adam Gardner, Brian Rosenworcel and Luke Reynolds recorded at Swift’s Cottage Grove, OR studio in three whirlwind weeks – the fastest the band has ever finished an album. “We recorded with one drum microphone, used whole takes, didn’t obsess over vocals or really edit things at all,” said Rosenworcel. “It’s a raw version of our band.”
