“[This] unholy man/machine-alliance plays noisy shoegazer. Beautiful pop songs draped in a veil of guitar distortion, pulsating in 60 hertz, synced to the unsteady flicker of the television. Bloodveins and digital circuits tangle in a new body of sound….” – Soundvenue.
In short and maybe not that well put: The Deprecation Guild is the cute cousin of A Place to Bury Strangers (yes, and they’re both from Brooklyn. Everyone knows each other in that part of NYC and they all hang out and drink coffee together and share the same distortion pedals. I know that for a fact). It’s not as abrasive though, more dreamy. Well crafted shoegaze with one of those The Pains Of Being Pure at Heart dudes. Got to love it. This one is due out on 7″ by Kanine, but the first album was given away for free. Find out more here.
