Safe And Also No Fear [Clear Vinyl] (LP)
Slaughter Beach, Dog
On Safe and Also No Fear, Jake Ewald’s (Modern Baseball) intrepid side project, Slaughter Beach, Dog, returns with a more fleshed-out lineup featuring Ian Farmer (Modern Baseball) on bass, Nick Harris (All Dogs) on guitar and Zack Robbins (Superheaven) on drums. The songs are a testament to their combined talents with tight-as-hell songwriting, heartfelt melodies, and introspective lyrics. There are moments of melancholy next to hell-raising harmonies; lead single “One Down” is a drowsy acoustic number while “Good Ones” lets the good times roll. Fusing lo-fi, indie, punk, and raucous folk rock, Safe and Also No Fear offers a familiar yet fresh feast for the senses.
