Following a 4-year hiatus, San Francisco post-punk trio Erase Errata is has announced their fourth studio album Lost Weekend, set to be self-released on January 20 via the band’s own label Under The Sun and distributed by Revolver. Notorious for clocking in songs at 60 seconds, the new album packs the same raw punch while also reflecting the band’s sonic growth with meatier songs. Erase Errata is Jenny Hoyston on vocals, guitar, trumpet, Ellie Erickson on bass and Bianca Sparta on drums.
Having released “My Life In Shadows” as an early taste of Lost Weekend’s thoughtful rage, the lead track is an understated emancipation anthem to ward off toxicity with a positive acquisition of control. In both conjunction and contrast to it, album opener “History of Handclaps” is a playful foray that distinguishes itself from the rest of the album. Meant as a nod to the angular no wave sound of Other Animals, it also includes alt-country troubadour William Elliot Whitmore and Rob Spector, singer of Not Not Fun dark wave trio Bronze on background vocals.
