Expert Alterations will be releasing their self-titled EP this summer via Slumberland Records. Today, they share a taste of the album, with the track “A Bell.”
Expert Alterations’ influences range from the well-trod (TVPs, The Wedding Present) to roads less traveled (Yeah Yeah Noh, Close Lobsters) and they process them into songs that can stand side-by-side with such standard-bearers. Alan does double duty also playing bass in noise pop band Wildhoney, and Paul curates Baltimore Popfest and hosts Pay Your Rates, a monthly party devoted to UK DIY and post punk. In addition, the band has toured with a reformed Flatmates and supported bands such as likes of The Clean, Crystal Stilts and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.
While their influences may be Anglo-centric, Expert Alterations are partnering with a label on this side of the pond with Slumberland records, who will be releasing Expert Alterations’ 2014 self-released cassette as a one-sided 12″ this summer.
